Thank you so much for this set. Looking at Grace, you would think that Monaco is a much bigger place than what it actually is -- more like an empire than a principality.

When it comes to Grace in her element, nobody comes close.

Cool

Zubiaur, I have no words........... The pics are astonishing.

I would like to tell one story.

In 1974, Prince Rainier of Monaco bought one of Faberge eggs, which is called the Imperial Blue Serpent Egg for his wife Princess Grace; it was commissioned in 1887 by Tsar Alexander for his wife Maria. Thanks to their son it was later displayed at the Cleveland Museum of Art.

Thanks for the impressive pics, Zubiar.

Allow me to share with you though what I read ... yes, Prince Rainier did give the Imperial Blue Serpent Egg to Princess Grace, but he did not buy it. It was a gift to him by shipping magnate Stavros Niarchos for his Silver Jubilee in 1974.

Princess Grace adored this gift so much especially since she was obsessed with the tragic Czarina Alexandra accdg to her biography. She loved to read biographies of other royals, and Alexandra Romanov was a favorite.

What is ironic though is that in the book Nicolas and Alexandra, there was a footnote in which George Balanchine, the famous dancer, described the Russian Empress. He said that she was very beautiful, like Grace Kelly!!! George Balanchine worked with Grace as she consulted him a lot when she was trying to revive the Ballet tradition of Monte Carlo.

I will try to get the actual page number of that detail. I found it astounding that the author of the book, Robert Massie, chose to use the comparison with Grace Kelly to demonstrate how stunningly beautiful Alexandra was. By the way, the book was published in 1967.

You often hear so much about the eggs and some wonder what all the fuss was about them. however, of the 1 or 2 that we have see they are quite beautiful!
