Cannot identify this vase. I doubt if it is silver though marked 84.

Hi silverfan -

it is authentic/typical Persian - 875/1000 silver - Persia used for a certain time the Russian silver content mark 84 zolotniki. Google is your friend!

Hello,

This does have low content silver. It looks more copper plated in silver. Iranian. I have a piece like this and was always doubtful it was silver. Like I said it has low content silver.

Regards,
Hada

Hi hada,
Thank you very much for your reply. Can you say something to town of origin or maker? Can you translate the words on the vase?
Regards silverfan

If low content silver,then obviously not correlated to old Russian 84 standard (.875) and not legislated.
Worth testing.

Hi -

not low content silver but silver 84 Zolotniki = 875/1000! Resulting from the Russian/Persian Allianz.
