A gilt-bronze bust of Mikhail Dmitriyevich Skobelev (1843-1882). On a Russian semi-precious stone base. The stone is probably amazonite. The back with some later Russian engravings. Mikhail Dmitriyevich Skobelev (born in St. Petersburg 1843 – dead of a heart attack in Moscow in 1882) was a Russian general famous for his conquest of Central Asia and heroism during the Russo-Turkish War of 1877–1878. Dressed in white uniform and mounted on a white horse, he was known and adored by his soldiers as the "White General" (and by the Turks as the "White Pasha"). During a campaign in Khiva, his Turkmen opponents called him "Bloody Eyes". British Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery wrote that Skobelev was the world's "ablest single commander" and called him a "skillful and inspiring" leader.
