Lot 0087 Details

Description
An interesting Spirit Bottle, late 17th century, probably Dutch or Bohemian, of rectangular section, the soda metal cut with the Imperial Russian double-headed eagle arms enclosing a monogram, the sides with scrolling foliage, 21.5cm The wheel-engraved arms are those of the Romanovs but the central monogram is difficult to interpret; it may be a mirrored P. If so, it could stand for Peter (the Great) who visited Europe between 1697 and 1699 on a 'Grand Embassy' to encourage links and learn more of the advanced Western technology. His most successful trip was to the Netherlands. This lot is believed to have come from the family of Countess Anastasia Mikhailovna de Torby (known as Zia) who was the elder daughter of Grand Duke Michael Mikhailovich of Russia. She married Sir Harold Wernher and this item was given to Mr J W Sanders, the Clerk of Works, at Luton Hoo.
