I had always thought Irina resembled Xenia but, you're right, there's a very strong resemblance to Grand Duchess Olga.

That's not him. That's Duke Eugenyi of Leuchtenberg, son of GDss Maria Nikolayevna.

Really, it's Duke Eugenyi?!  I got the picture from Jacques Ferrand: Romanoff un album de famille, 1989 and was under the Mikhailovitch section.   Wow, I think that Grand Duke Mikhail and Duke Eugenyi look alike, I definitely thought it was.

That's really Olga Feodorovna?  I've always seen it labeled as Olga of Wuerttemberg ???  Interesting.

The eyes and the nose really do remind me of Queen Olga of Wurttemberg although Olga Feodorovna had a distinctive looking face as well with similar features.  

Pretty strange they made a bust for the wife of the 4th son. But her husband was Governor General of Caucasia, so perhaps it was made in connection to that, although that ended in 1882 and Olga looks too old for 43. Considering Olga Nikolaevna was a Queen it makes more sense for them to make a bust of her.

The source is a book on GD Mikhail N.,published when he was still alive. I don't think they did a mistake :)

Actually I don't see any strange in making bust of Olga F. The reason is not that her husband was the Governor, every person in that time , who had enough money, could order a bust of him/herself.

I'll take your word for it, Sveta; you're usually spot-on :)
