Re: What is it for?

In the 1960s-1970s, a wide assortment of Vietnamese silver items was actively exported to the USSR: trays, wine sets, teapots, tea strainers, sugar tongs, cutlery, spice sets, cigarette cases, ashtrays, etc. These items were made of silver 900, were of good quality and had a reasonable price.

Re: Russian Spoon

Qrt.S, you are absolutely right - this is Krollau. Unfortunately assay mark is poorly readable, and my eyes are no longer perfect ...
And my second mistake - the name of Artsybashev is Anatoliy (Анатолий) but not Alexander.

Re: Pillbox/snuffbox?

Hello!
Bergqvist worked in St. Petersburg but the box was made in Moscow. Most likely the maker is Yegor Vladimirov.

Re: S. Stroganov Curious Detail?

Hi Question: Pavel and Sergeij run the Moscow shop. Why only Sergeij marked with his initial (according to the rumors)? What did Pavel? Why no marked objects from him? Lack of equality? Usually they use the court supplier logo....they were very proud of that! Answer: Pavel Ignatievich Sazikov died ...

Re: S. Stroganov Curious Detail?

Do you believe the hallmark on these spoons is somehow related to the small hallmark on the medal? Are they all somehow related to "Imperial Court" hallmarks? I just am not sure about the hallmarks on the spoons which look like "mis-struck" hallmarks, what are we to think about ...

Hello! This is not Samson Stroganov. This is Sergey Ignatievich Sazikov (Сергей Игнатьевич Сазиков) - one of the famous Sazikov family, supplier of the Imperial Court.

Hello! The maker is R. Hertz Szyldberg (RHS) from Warsaw. He was known in 1850-1870. His trademark is "scale". Regards. http://images.vfl.ru/ii/1560428833/47b57a9c/26875068_m.jpg http://images.vfl.ru/ii/1560429081/3d0bba71/26875110_m.jpg http://images.vfl.ru/ii/1560429106/a6d27705/26875122...

Re: Possibly Warsaw, who is maker?

This is not Minsk. This is Kamenetz-Podolskiy (Каменец-Подольский). The town marks of these towns are similar. Ivan Tschertenkov (Иван Чертенков) worked in Kamenetz-Podolskiy in 1866-1883 and never worked in Minsk. http://images.vfl.ru/ii/1560342120/d0ca88f9/26864923_m.jpg http://images.vfl.ru/ii/15...

Re: possible Rappoport silver?

The maker is Girsh Ravkin (Гирш Равкин) from Berdichev (Kiev assay office). He was the son-in-law of Israel Eselevich Zakhoder (Израиль Еселевич Заходер - ИЕЗ) and in 1907 became his heir. The mark Н-ИЕЗ means "Наследники ИЕЗ" - the heirs of ИЕЗ. http://images.vfl.ru/ii/1560069712/2f81b938...

Re: Russian Spoon 7

Hallmarks are fake. The town mark is similar to Vitebsk or Mogilev but there has never been assayer with initials И.A. in these cities. Moreover, there was no assayer with the initials И.A. in all of Russia in 1871.

Qrt.S , my sources are not PL or Ivanov's books. I used the Moscow address calendars. In 1886 Petrov was on the staff of Moscow assay office, but in 1887 he was already absent there. http://images.vfl.ru/ii/1559852103/fd3712fc/26806017_m.jpg http://images.vfl.ru/ii/1559852178/6e06b679/26806036_m.jp...

Hi!
Yes, this is indeed Vasily Petrov, but according to my sources, he worked in 1883-1886.
Qrt.S, can you show Petrov's marks in 1887-1893?
