Throughout the 16th and 17th centuries, England's Tudor and Stuart monarchs regularly exchanged diplomatic gifts with the Russian tsars - magnificent silverware, paintings, textiles and jewellery. Published in conjunction with a major exhibition at the V&A, this handsomely illustrated book brings together items from the museum's own collection with loans from the Kremlin, to present a dazzling picture of the colours and textures of court life, of relations between the two nations, and the leading personalities of the period.
