Russian Pieces, Little help please

Postby emilgaigns » Sat Jun 16, 2018 10:10 am

I have some pieces that I want to buy bulk and if is possible I want to get also your opinion about any of them you might recognise (if looks fake,etc) . Thank you so much !

P.s I don't have any other photos, nor I can ask for more, I'm just asking about a general opinion. Thanks.

Hi,
Looks like Vienna enamel gilt bronze or silver. If silver, it should be fully marked with Austria - Hungary Empire marks, more likely with marks for small items (dog`s head) and maker`s mark.
Without marks, no positive identification but really looks like Vienna enamel.
Regards

That was common Caucasus souvenir, either niello or cloisonne.
Are there any marks ?

Hi emilgaigns -

the enamel belt buckel is a contemporary fake: size, style, colours and details are not as they should be or are known!
The shape of the dagger grip alone exposes the dilletante.....

Here some originals - look - compare - learn! Correct and clear marking is a must!

Hi Dad -

Dad wrote:Enamel belt buckle look like original.


"look like original" is not the same as "is original"!
There are several give aways - the 2 prominents: dagger handle (grip) and plain (undecorated) lock piece. Please compare with the shown original, authentic buckles. There is much more to say - about style, colours, details, etc. But it would require some practical experience.....
