The Tsar's' Cabinet
Two posts in one day- it's a record. This afternoon I went to the Museum of History to see the exhibit of the Tsars' Cabinet.
They had displays of the Tsars' dinner services, glassware, serving pieces from the Romanovs. There were explanations both of the pieces and how they were made and the history of the times they were made. This exhibit ends shortly and will be moving up to Massachusetts. They also had an exhibit of Russian Icons in conjunction with it.
It is called "Windows into Heaven" and is from a private collection of a couple from Charlotte. The icons in this collection are amazing. This collection will not be going up to Massachusetts. I wish I could have taken pictures but as both collections are privately owned they prohibited it.
