This small metal icon shows St George slaying the Dragon, a popular iconographic theme. There are a number of possibilities as to the Moscow silversmith workshop that produced this work - for more information, see Geoffrey Watts, Russian Silversmiths' Hallmarks: 1700 to 1917, (Bath, Gemini, 2006), pp. 171-172.
