Re: Russian marks. II.

Let's start with the kokshnik. It was in use 1899-1908. The assayer is Cyrillic AP. He is the very well known Aleksandr Romanov. This time he is assaying in Warsaw 1899-1904. Why I know he is in Warsaw is that the star of David tells me that. It is the trade mark to master Kazimierez Bierkowski (KB)...

Look it up and stop acting like a goof. A royal cypher is a monogram. THEY ARE SYNONYMES, got it!

Re: Morosov fork

Forgot to tell that the word "cipher" relates to Latin not French! Check what the Latin word is and you be surprised.
Pseudonyme:
"Studied Latin for 7 years"

Re: Which Swedish town is this spoon from?

The pattern is called "Palmes Suedois". It is an old common European rococo pattern. Ironically its name in Swedish is "Gammalfransk" meaning "Old French".

Re: Russian spoon

@Dad @Ubaranda Thank you, much appreciated information. The only thing is that again mistakes and faults are found in Postnikova. There was a Segeyev (MC?) i Vyatka in 1892 (P#"692A"). Is he possibly the same earlier mentioned Matvei Sergeyev by Dad or? Also Matvey Sorokin seems to have as...

@p_helm The story AG2012 presents is most likely the story told by the seller to a potential buyer not knowing anything about silver marks. All in order to sell to a fool. Secondly, it is not a napkin ring but a small cup. The marks are on the bottom. Anyway, the cup is ”genuine” and silver. It is n...

Re: Russian spoon

@Ubaranda
One more question, if you don't mind. In Postnikova Minsk is a mess that we all know. However, there are some other assayers mentioned there, among those Frolov, Uchatov and Sorokin. Is this correct or incorrect?
Thank you in advance.

I have never claimed I know it all, far from it. However, I do not like irrelevant comments based on nothing. You made a foolish comment not knowing that Vladimir was Ivan¨s son. That was not a particularly professional statement.

Re: Morosov fork

It is reason to mention that there are actually several Morozows but two famous ones, both court suppliers.

1 Ivan Ekimovich Morozow 1825-1885
and
2 Ivan Ivanovich Morozow 1849-1898(?)

PA and ИМ worked for the latter one
