Grand Duchesses Olga and Tatiana reading aboard the Standart: 1914.
Grand Duchess Olga (1895 – 1918) holds a toy, 1901. Below is the same toy.
I’m so very skeptical of things like this - the chocolate stained gloves purported to have belonged to Anastasia, etc. For this one at least I say absolutely no way that is what she is holding in the picture. I’m pretty sure the top picture is a real cat, and the bottom picture shows a stuffed animal sitting up. In the top picture the cat is on its belly.
I’m pretty sure Olga is holding a real cat in the picture. It also has a little dark patch on it’s tail, so it can’t be the same as the toy below. The girls could have had a toy like that but I don’t think its in that picture.

Me: Worked out, better take a shower.
Makes banana bread and then sits and watches I Love Lucy and the Brady Bunch for three hours. Oops.
