Gallery

This webpage is dedicated to Latvia 100th anniversary 

During the course of history our family went through bad times. Hard destiny of our motherland, war conflicts, politics, changes of state borders caused an undoable damage. Yet work of multiple generations is saved as a gallery / storage of old / historic items and documents. We a trying to preserve precious antique artifacts of the past since the end of 19th century. And now we want to show results of our work to public. We are not historians and we do not pretend to be scientifically significant. We just do what we love, what we can, what our ancestors started. We hope, you will find it interesting! All items featured in this gallery do exist. The gallery and the authors are located in Latvia. Unfortunately there is no means to organize all 2500 items as an "open to a wide public" museum. We plan to increase number of featured items in virtual gallery and real gallery. We also plan to add more information about gallery exhibits and expand to new categories, beyond art, icons, paintings, household items and military gear.
