One response to “COUNTESSA RABBITSKI….and her jewels……..

  1. Robert Heitmann worked for my great grandmother when he was a young boy in Cincinnati in the 30’s. He helped her in her gardens and greenhouse.
    I last saw him in his NYC apartment at least fifteen years ago. Many if not all of his dioramas were haphazardly stored there! He had an incredible eye and memory for detail. He sketched and painted my family’s gardens and home with whimsical accuracy decades after leaving Cincinnati! I’m very happy that you have the dioramas. Treasure them!
