The initials AP, a mark that appears frequently on Grachev's enameled pieces, are thought to be those of Alexander Feodorovich Petrov (?-1904), who was one of the chief enamelers for the firm of Fabergé after 1895. The skill of the enameling on this case suggests that it certainly should be attributed to him. These are absolutely sublime, the craftsmanship is exquisite, it would take me a hundred years to try and do this kind of work, you have hundreds and hundreds of small mosaic style individual sections which have been carefully sculpted, then cast in the Cloisonne technique with enamel The main body is solid silver, its 84 grade Russian silver and has the 84 stamped alone with the sideways facing head. This dates to 1880, it’s a very large cigarette case for the era, it would fit todays cigarettes with ease, most likely it was used for small cigars In 1866, Gavriil Petrovich Grachev established a silversmith firm in St. Petersburg. After Gavriil's death in 1873, the business was continued by his sons Mikhail, Alexei, Grigorii, Simeon, Nikolai, Gavriil, Petr and Ivan, and thereafter became known as 'Grachev Brothers'.
