Workers restoring former Russian mansion find massive treasure hoard wrapped in newspaper from 1917. Over 1,000 pieces of jewelry found in storage space between two floors. Trove includes silver service sets stamped with noble family's name. Row develops as various parties lay claim to the treasure. Too early to put estimate on value of the St Petersburg hoard.
Russia - the homes outside of the larger cities (like St. Petersburg or Moscow) - MUCH different lifestyle... some things reminded me of the 1940's... and a much simpler, community lifestyle. I miss this.
