Re: Russian Silver Gilt & Niello Champagne Flutes

Hi AG2012 - as you may know I am a collector of Russian silver and have the same literature as everybody. In addition, I have connections / exchange of ideas with other, international collectors - including many Russians. From this sources came the name of Kolotoschin - a often found niello spoon ma...

Re: Niello Spoon

Hi Qrt.S - Hmmmmm... I'm not fully convinced that this is the case. The time span is rather big. The spoon's year is 1844. In addition, there is no mentioning of that Anton Tchevarsin would have used the mark М.Ч. Mihail and Anton are well known, why is Mihail not mentioned anywhere? At least I have...

Re: Niello Spoon

Hi madej - if you have problems with the translation use "google translator" . It is very time consumating to explain to you what was written again and again!! This are the marks of Tchevarsin Anton Mikhailovich (the father of Mikhail - the maker of your spoons). https://abload.de/img/211t...

Re: Russian 84 silver spoons: fake or not

Hi - another important indication is the style/form/craftsmanshift of the spoon - typical Russian! Nowhere in Europa you find similar spoons. Fakers can make thanks to computerized milling machines, any number of identical spoons from an existing, authentic pattern spoon. The days when faker made fa...

Re: Russian 84 silver spoons: fake or not

Hi - just a reminder: Lev Oleks was in Moscow on duty: 1889-91, 1892-94, 1895-1904, 1915-1917. In Kiew on duty: 1905-1914 The spoon itself is most likely from this period and the engraving would be authentic as already mentioned. You think fakers marked an authentic spoon with correct fake marks? 18...

Re: Russian 84 silver spoons: fake or not

No rule without exception! The larger spoons are sometimes (very rarely) also on the back of the stems marked - often found in "better known" manufacturers. However, caution is required. Your pictured spoon seems to me absolutely real. Since these spoons are made today with state-of-the-ar...

In order to be able to form a realistic judgment, not only information about the manufacturer but also real pieces is required. Books alone do not always help. Luckily, object...

Just use the search function on the upper right side - enter "Tchevarsin" and read/understand what you see! The information is from the year 2016! At least I have no records of him. As a "copy and paste artist" you missed this one. Maybe you will realize one day that the indicati...

Re: Morosov fork

Hi "Besserwisser" - the word "cipher" or "chiffre " is used when a devoured monogram in connection with a crown is used, you have to decipher it. The noun cipher refers to a numeral or number. On the other hand, a cipher can also be a secret character, a sign of a secre...

Hi p_helm - I myself bought this fork at a market, and it certainly was not expensive, so no gain for a fake market. I do not see myself as a fool as I bought a piece that interested me. I liked it and bought it because I like it, not because of any hallmarks. It was only after did some research and...
