Lot 145
Russia/Tsar/Communists: Extremely rare pair of postcards written by Baroness Sophie Buxhoeveden, a lady in waiting to Empress Alexandra of Russia during the final weeks of Tsar Nicolas II and the royal family's life and exile in Siberia. One mentions the Baroness being in the same compartment as "Nastenka" when they were being moved the other refers to them awaiting orders. Nastenka was a nickname of Princess Anastasia but also more likely in this context it refers to Countess Anastasia Hendrikova, a descendent of the family of Catherine I, wife of Peter the Great. The Countess acted as a governess to the four Grand Duchesses and was executed by the Bolsheviks in September 1918, she was canonised by the Russian Orthodox Church as a martyr in 1981.

Baroness Buxhoeveden accompanied the Tsar and his family into exile in Siberia after his abdication and only survived due to her non-Russian sounding name. The cards are postmarked 22nd May 1918 in Tyumen in Western Siberia and 27th May in Ekaterinburg, the town where seven weeks later the Royal Family were executed by the Bolsheviks.

They are both written to Anna Ivanovna Meder of 12 Bogoyavlenskaya str in Tobolsk (former capital of Siberia). The first of the postcards bears the postmarks 22 May 1918 in Tyumen and 26 May 1918 in Tobolsk and reads: My dear Anna Ivanovna, I am in good health. I am in the same compartment with Nastenka. Hope You are healthy. Hugging you fondly. Please write to me. This postcard bears the "Exam Radionov" censors mark.

The second even more poignantly is postmarked on
27 May 1918 at Ekaterinburg train station and reads: Dear Anna Ivanovna, Hoping along with Andrey Ivanovich, awaiting orders I am in good health. Many Hugs, Izya (Izya was the nickname given to the Baroness by the Tsarina).

Any ephemera written by a member of the Russian Royal Household during this period is rare but to have a pair of postcards written so close to the date when the Tsar and his family were executed and in such close proximity to the event by someone so close to the family is exceptional.
