Transcription: [double-headed eagle] The Schaffer Collection of Russian Imperial Art Treasures Rockefeller Center, New York December 3, 1934 #150 A most exceptional blue and silver brocade cope, with an all-over “Baroque” floral and leaf design woven in silver threads which will never tarnish, as they were treated with an unknown process which is today a lost art. It is bordered with a very fine hand-made silver lace of the period. Russian, 18th century. From the private collection of Czarina Alexandra Feodorovna, wife of Nicholas II, the late Czar of Russia. From the Alexandrovsky Palace at Tsarskoye Selo.
