Re: Russian Fork

Hi
This fork was made by unknow maker "ИЦ". I think this maker from Odessa. 1914.
Соломон Гробдрук (Solomon Grobdruk) - was jewelery dealer. Perhaps he from Kishinev.

Re: Russian spoon

I can add that Matvei Sorokin never worked in the Minsk Assay Office.
Short time (1874-1877) assayer Matvei Sergeyev worked in Minsk Assay Office (after Yaroslavl) .

About "import". I think, it is necessary to divide concepts. There is import of products for sale through customs. It is official import with the corresponding procedures and attributes. But, silver products can be brought (from foreing) privately, as personal, own. Then, it was brought in...

@Dad, Unfortunately I cannot find/I don't have the Decree 7517 of February 22, 1732) where it is stated that the silver fineness could be 75 zolotnik. Nonetheless, 75 was applied for gold coins only (1718). During the 18th century there was many "standards" for silver 62, 70, 72, 77...The...

Hi It is made in Hamburg during earlier period of time. Then, in the 1770th the Petersburg assay office marked it by russian punches. 75 – it is purity of silver (zolotnik). (Decree 7517 of February 22, 1732) At this time (1770th) a usual set of punches guaranteed the minimum purity of silver - 72 z...

Re: Russian Hallmark Identification

Yes. Qrt.S are right. It's russian import mark (84, eagle,ПТ). But, period before 1882.
"Eagle" - assay office mark. Most possibly it is Warsaw.
Country of producing was Germany. ( most possibly)
