Item #4289 State Regalia of the Muscovite Tsardom

State Regalia of the Muscovite Tsardom

Moscow: Muzei Moskovskogo Kremlia, 2019. Sewn cl. This catalogue publishes ornamental garments, crowns and jewels in the collections of the Moscow Kremlin Museums that have ceremonial value as symbols of the Russian sovereigns from the fourteenth to the seventeenth centuries. First used by Grand Princes then by Tsars, the works represent the most elaborate form of material culture. They are both rare works of applied and decorative art and historical artefacts; they have no analogies in other museums. Many of the works are published here with scholarly catalogue entries for the first time. Authors are curators of the collections and present years of research in chapters on artistic characterics and political significance. The works were photographed anew in high quality for this edition. 304 p., 28 cm, approx. 250 color illus., ENGLISH. Item #4289
