The inscription below reads as follows in Translation: This icon has been painted Lavrentij Tufanov in 1717, after the example of the icon in the Elias street of the city-Novgorod. // The inscription on the Oklad has some spelling errors, also, the year is incorrectly specified with 1713. In addition, the Glass used rectangles with the gold letters pages of the head of the mother of God in the wrong way. It is likely to be one of the earliest assignable silversmith working in St. Petersburg, which was founded only in 1703. To the importance of the painter Tufanov, see: http://rusico.indrik.ru/artists/t/tufanov_lg/index.shtml?adm=0e5358d616d2d5595ba8fe04bcc82 39a // Expertise: Heinz Skrobucha from 1983
