Treasures of the Royal Courts: A Rich Chariot
This film presents the English coach given by James I’s ambassador Thomas Smith to Tsar Boris Godunov in 1604. Although the coach was restored in the 1670s, much of the construction, upholstery and embroidery is original and a remarkable survival. This spectacular coach can be found in the Moscow Kremlin Museums.
