The tragic events of 1917-18 forced many Russians to flee their homeland and live abroad. Paris, Berlin, Prague, and Vilnius, were popular destinations in which to set up and decorate their new home-away-from-home. In decorating an apartment or room the impoverished Russian aristocrat abroad sought to recreate the rich surroundings left behind. As time and budget would allow, reproductions and imperfect originals, along with suitable odds and ends were collected and enjoyed.
