The stamps feature Antique coaches of great art and historic value, kept in the Armoury Palace of the Moscow Kremlin. The heavy carriage belonged to boyarin Nikita Ivanovich Romanov, as certified by a 1706 inventory of the Tsar’s Mews. The winter sleigh belonged to Empress Anna Ioannovna (1730-1740) and later to Empress Elizaveta Petrovna (1741-1761). The carriage, which was a gift from Emperor Fredrick II to Empress Elizaveta Petrovna, was used for coronation ceremonies in the 18-19 centuries. The carriage was used by Catherine II, a Russian Empress (1762-1796) for ceremonial purposes. The carriage was made to order of Count Grigory Orlov and presented to Catherine II.
