Treasures of The Royal Courts (Hardback)


      • Product Description: This beautiful book explores the diplomatic, trade and cultural exchanges between the courts of Britain and Russia, from the reign of Henry VIII to the death of Charles II. Through the material life of the courts, the gifts of the diplomats and the commissions of the monarchs, the book presents an overview of privileged living in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries - illustrating the material life of the leading personalities of the period.

        Engaging and authoritative, Treasures of the Royal Courts uses superb new photography to illustrate chapters on diplomacy, silver, portraits, miniatures, arms and armour, heraldry, textiles and jewellery by experts from the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Kremlin Museum, Moscow. Tessa Murdoch is Acting Keeper in the Sculpture, Metalwork, Ceramics and Glass department at the V&A. Olga Dmitrieva is Deputy Director of the Moscow Kremlin Museums.
