8/18/2011 2:31 AM We are not Russian experts - just UK students of Russian who have learned Russian for three years in our retirement. This card does not provide an address other than the name of the town abbreviated. Brest Litovsk.

We read the the surname as Stamler[a]with initials A.L or L.L. If you dont get more expert help than this, I have a book which includes some guidance on flowery Russian script.

Note that the [a] on the end of the surname and other names on this card is the Russian genitive ending, like we add 's. The Atelier or studio is that of Stamler so Stamler has an a on the end.

Below the logo are various “Certificates and awards of his Imperial Majesty Great Prince Mikhail Nikolayevich”.
