Small Russian icon - Joy to All Who Sorrow Mother of God in silver revetment cover

Small icon in silver revetment cover depicting Joy to All Who Sorrow Mother of God. Hallmarked with ca. Moscow 1869 mark. 

Mother of God, Joy to All Who Sorrow of Moscow is the name of a famous wonderworking Russian Orthodox icon. The icon dates to a miracle that occurred on October 24, 1688, when a woman named Euphemia received healing from sickness after obeying a voice telling her to find this icon and have the priest celebrate a prayer with the blessing of water. The design of this icon depicts the Mother of God, depicted full-figured standing with her Son in Heaven and God the Father above her in the clouds. Along both sides of the icon, framing the Mother of God, depicted are many suppliants asking for her intercession. The tenderness and kindness of a loving mother are evident in her face as She stands in paradise and yet among us.
