These pillow case originated from the House of Hesse-Darmstadt. Alix of Hesse-Darmstadt - in full Her Grand Duchess Highness Princess Alix Viktoria Helene Luise Beatrix of Hesse and by Rhine - (* June 6, 1872 in the New Palace, Darmstadt, Grand Duchy of Hesse; † 17. July 1918 in Ekaterinburg) was grand duchess princess of Hesse-Darmstadt and, through her marriage (1894) to the future Emperor Nicholas II, as Alexandra Fedorovna (Russian Александра Фёдоровна), the last empress of Russia. The Hessian family occasionally traveled to Russia to visit relatives. On one of these trips, these pillow case (and other parts) were also purchased in Moscow and probably subsequently personalized (embroidered monogram). The underwear bears the label of: Vladimir Loenvisson - Moscou. The writing is not in Cyrillic because the noble ladies did not know Russian. Well preserved. A few stains. A few pulled threads in the monogram. The decoration is not included.
