Unknown Makers Mark

Postby Markaty » Fri Mar 24, 2017 9:53 pm

Hi guys,

I tried this in the American Silver Forum with No luck, so I was wondering if the hallmarks to these earrings may be a bust of a native American?

There is also a symbol to the left of the figure, but I cannot find anything online which might give me a clue about the Maker

Any help you can give would be gratefully received!

Hi,
It`s modern Russian mark since 1994.The letter ``O`` in the mark stands for Orel Орёл (город)assay office.

And the initials пфю (PFYu) will identify the workshop but I am afraid I don't have any references that list them.

Hello again,
This is rather confusing.
Первая буква обозначает год изготовления ,вторая - шифр инспекции , далее следуют буквы, идентифицирующие мастера .


First letter indicates year.
Second letter is assay office.
Then the letter or letters indicating the manufacturer.
But in the post the second letter``Ф`` is different from the letter in ``modern kokoshnik`` mark (``О``).
Still trying to identify the system.
Regards
