We often source and supply pieces for film and tv productions. We were delighted to supply the antique crib and other pieces for series two of 'The Great'. The fabulous series starring Elle Fanning and Nicholas Hoult as Catherine the Great and Peter III of Russia is returning for a second season in December on Hulu.
Catherine the Great was the last reigning Empress Regnant of Russia from 1762 until 1796. She was the country's longest-ruling female leader. She came to power following the overthrow of her husband and second cousin, Peter III. Under her reign, Russia grew and prospered, its culture and social standing was revitalised. Russia became one of the recognised as one of the great powers of Europe.
The antique mahogany crib has panelled sides and wonderful turned legs. Perfect for any emperor of Russia.
Paul I was Emperor of Russia from 1796 until his assassination. He was the only son of Peter III and Catherine the Great. Paul remained overshadowed by his mother for most of his life. He adopted the laws of succession to the Russian throne. Which lasted until the end of the Russian Empire.
We can't wait for the new series to hit our screens and be keen to see how the story unfolds. We have been trilled to supply props to such a fabulous series.
