Treasures from Kremlin Armoury Museum on display in London

Britannia & Muscovy: English Silver at the Court of the Tsars, an exhibit of rare Elizabethan and Stuart silver and gold from the collections of the Kremlin Armoury Museum, will be featured at London's Gilbert Collection until January 28, 2007.

From the exhibition website:

From the time when Richard Chancellor discovered a northern sea route to Russia in 1553 and was presented at the court of Ivan the Terrible, English travellers to Russia were amazed at the richness and opulence of the Russian Court with its displays of gold and silver designed to dazzle the visitor.

The website includes photos of objects included in the exhibit.
