Wallpaper Description:
The great throne hall in the Winter Palace was recreated in the early 1840s, by the project of V. P. Stasov after the fire, he was able to save the composition of his predecessor Giacomo Quarenghi. Impress large dimensions of the hall, United with carrascoso white purity of marble, imported from Italy and gilded bronze glow, gives the decoration of the main premises of the Winter Palace special solemnity. The principal is the unique copper ceiling, its pattern, as in a mirror reflects the pattern of the parquet, composed of 16 rare species of trees shaped mosaic and is covered with a carved pattern. Six massive chandeliers of gilt bronze, three on each side, suspended from the trusses of the ceiling. The hall light enters through the Windows 14 of the first tier 18 Windows and balconies. On recreated in 2000, the throne seat, which stands on an Eminence, 7 steps and a canopy decorated with gold and brocade worked employees of the Museum. On a red velvet covered with gilded silver mounted the throne, made in 1731 for Empress Anna Ivanovna English master N. Clausen. High on the wall, place above the throne, above the balcony, placed a marble bas-relief depicting St. George, patron Saint of Russia and of the Russian army. Carved arms of the chair completed the picture of the eagle heads, the legs of the throne are made in the form of powerful paws clutching gilded balls. Embroidered on the back in silver thread coat of arms is repeated behind the throne, on a scarlet background."
