Russian Silver Cigarette Box Hallmark Identification

Postby bobandcindy » Tue Aug 14, 2018 8:45 pm

I have been trying to figure out the hallmark for this silver cigarette box and have been unable to decipher the maker. I would appreciate any help identifying the Russian silversmith. Thank you.

Bob

Hi,
The maker is Alexander Alexeev Muhin, Moscow.

PL 2208 and 2209
There are cigarette cases by Muhin with similar flower enameled decor.
