Russian "сф" mark ?

I saw an item at an estate sale, that looks a bit strange. The kokoshnik looks like Yakov Nikolayevich Lyapunov used in St. Petersburg 1898-1903 Makers mark is сф Could that be Karl K. Fischer or Samuel Filiander, both active in St.P ? Also, there is a gold mark that also doesn't seem right somehow....

Re: Help identifying city marks

I always check those sections. My other questions were more to know about specifics things to look when seeing russian silver marks and not beeing fooled by very good visual fakes.
Here was a city mark that I never seen, even after looking on the russian section in all pages.

Re: Help identifying city marks

Hi. For this item i was about 99% sure it was fake but I asked maybe that was a city mark I haven’t seen before. It’s not greed, nor ignorance or stupidity. I’m just trying to learn as much as I can about Russian silver and enameled silver. Bought a few marks books, read them, but my problem is that...

1691 London hallmark William and Mary

I want to buy a silver bowl in a form that I had never seen for a late 17th century bowl, anyone seen something like this before? Thanks for any opinions.


Halmarked Samuel Hood, year 1691, London.

Don’t know the weight or any other information, nor I have other photos than this. Thanks.
