Russian Field Marshal’s Baton.

I came across this item while looking for something else. I do not think I have ever seen a Russian Field Marshal's baton from 'our' period.

An extremely rare jewelled, enamel and gold Russian Field Marshal’s Baton marked Keibel, St. Petersburg, circa 1878, 72 zolotniks gold standard, with later stamped inventory number 1822:
