Notes & Condition Report
I think this inscription refers to Count Aleksey Konstantinovich Tolstoy
(Second cousin of Leo Tolstoy)
He was Russian poet, novelist, and playwright
Best known for his dramatic trilogy The Death of Ivan the Terrible
Throughout the 1840s, this Tolstoy led a busy high society life, full of pleasure trips,
salon parties and balls, hunting sprees, and fleeting romances
Lovely engraved decoration
Pleasing to hold and perfect for a wine, small beer or water
Without damage or repair
