Re: Napkinring

Hi,
The kokoshnik mark is a fake mark. Look at the number 4 in the 84 - it is the wrong shape.
The other marks are a bit too rubbed for my liking. Also, I cannot find the OP mark anywhere.

Fake kokoshnik + КФ + Unknown mark = Very suspicious.

Piette

Re: STIRRUP CUP BY SAMUEL ARNDT

2.Henrik Wigström was supposed to have kokoshnik hallmark because he took over Perkhin`s worksop in 1903 when Perkhin died. Second, fake hallmarks cannot be punched over Guilloché enamel. Henrik Wigström made silver in his own workshop after Perkhin` s death and I leave to snobs to cherish his w...

Re: STIRRUP CUP BY SAMUEL ARNDT

I also wanted to contribute with my Russian regimental badges (not for the sake of their value I know everything about it, but to discuss the way they were enameled(translucent enamel needs lower temperatures, opaque is heated to over 800 degrees. How did they manage to execute both in one single f...

Re: Firm of Sazikov

Well piette, you gonna stumble into this problem with contradictory data many times. This is nothing new. But know what data is correct is more than difficult. You just have to stick to what you can find. This is what I have in my sources: Sazikov was on of the best and famous companies in Moscow a...

Re: Is this real silver?

Hi Qrt.S,
Am I right in thinking that there was also a 10th Moscow Artel which has been associated with Fabergé? Or is too little known about this Artel to make any connection?

Re: RED PATINA ON SILVER ?

Hi, Doesn't this mean that items from Tula, Nizni and Novgorod were sent to Moscow for hallmarking as opposed to having assay offices of their own? I think this is most likely. My opinion again - I believe that the redness in areas on the photo is actually reflected from the surroundings when the ph...

Hi Argentum49, Are you sure the 6th Moscow Artel worked for Moscow? I have nothing that says the 6th Artel worked in conjunction with Fabergé. Although my reference does say the 6th Artel were a court supplier, there is no mention of Fabergé. Regards, Piette Sorry, this is meant to read "Are...

Firm of Sazikov

Hi everyone, Yesterday, I was looking through books for information on The Firm of Sazikov. I looked in P-L (#2835) and in Руссое Серебро and found a great deal of information, but the information from the books contradicted each other and various dates were different. Here are the two ...

Re: British Assay Office Marking Errors

This thread is very interesting. I don't know if mentioning this is a taboo on this forum, but am I right in thinking that mismarked items would be a great deal more collectable than other items due to rarity? There is a similar situation with my Granddad who collects rare stamps. As well as nice an...

Hi Argentum49, Here is a link to your image: http://img208.imagevenue.com/img.php?image=84974_432871820_o_122_418lo.jpg In my opinion, the red patina which you describe here is simply a reflection from what is in the background whilst the photo is being taken. Not brass, or any other metal. Regards,...

Re: UNKNOWN RUSSIAN ITEM

Hi, It is possible that this is a serving plate, (possibly to be used in Jewish families) on which slices of bread would be placed? And there would be a dip for the bread in the holder? If I remember correctly I saw something very similar made of wood in my local auction house about 4 months ago tha...
