This scarcedepiction of Saint Nicholas the Wonderworker was painted in Moscow in thirdquarter of 16th century (not later than 1590); mercury gilt silveroklad was produced presumably in late 17th century in Kiev. As areference I was able to find exactly matching Nicolas depiction presented inGerman museum of Icons, Recklinghausen (catalog #156).

“Shoulder images of St. Nicholas withselected saints in the fields are known among the monuments of the Rostovcircle since the 15th century. This may indicate the existence of some Icon veneratedin the 15th century in the Rostov lands, the legends about which have beenlost, but the repetitions of which have survived. Perhaps, with the appearanceand spread of this image, the emergence of another image of St. Nicholas theWonderworker. All surviving icons of this iconography belong to the second halfof the 16th century. All of them are close not only iconographically, but alsostylistically. St. Nicholas is depicted on the shoulder, so that only a whiteomophorion with dark crosses and a small triangular collar fragment decoratedwith precious stones are visible. The face is large with a high and wideforehead, large eyes, a thin long nose and a small mouth. Typologically, thestructure of the face goes back to the Moscow monuments of the first half ofthe 16th century; Probably, at this time, this iconography spreads, going backto a group of similar icons of the saint, which have spread since the end ofthe 15th century, mainly in the Rostov lands, possibly being a repetition ofthe miraculous image that has not survived. We find a similar image among theportraits in the Iconographic original of the Siysk Monastery of the 16thcentury. (Pokrovsky, 1898. fol. 12). It is interesting that outside the XVIcentury. such images were not widespread, but in the 19th century, especiallyamong the Old Believers, their popularity was growing.” (Nechaeva TatianaNikitichna - Head of the Department of the Central Museum of Ancient RussianCulture and Art named after Andrey Rublev)
