Re: Late 18th century Norwegian Spoon

Yes, I share your opinion of the spoon's age. It is a rather typical spoon from Lapland (the rings). The reason for it being unmarked is that is was not mandatory to mark so called "country people" silver work.

Re: Help needed in identyfiyng Russian or Baltic XVIII c. silvermarks

Just for the records. Of pure curiosity I checked numbers Valdemar referred to and found that: P#1630 Jean Francois (Xavier?) Bouddé came to St Petersburg via Hamburg 1769 and worked there 1769-1789. He is a Frenchman. P#1755 Johann Wendel Feuerbach 1749-1767 is an Austrian. P#1788 Martin Charles Du...

Re: 1608-1617 Gierdt Frolich, Bergen, Norway Knop Top Spoon

Mind my asking what records? Giertt Frølich worked as apprentice and journeyman with Rørich Gilligsen 1588-1597 in Bergen. Giertt took his first apprentice not earlier than in 1608. What is your actual question?

No, no, no, nothing to do with either Sweden, Norway, Denmark or Finland. Take my word for it.

Re: Unknown marks on beaker

@Valdemar
George the Winner!? The Moscow town mark is St. George slaying the Dragon. Anyway, of course Veckman...(those Cyrillic letters B=V, my mistake). However, the marks are so badly damaged that a 100% correct answer cannot be given, only an assumption.

Re: Unknown marks on beaker

The marks are badly damaged, but something can be read. It is Moscow approx 1870~1887. The maker's mark's last letter is B. The first can be e.g. A that would be Andrey Beckman 1860-1884, but as well anyone else...?????

Nice doing Dad, thanks. Troepolskaja recognizes МПЗ (#19304), but not 3AB. What does it stand for. 3 for "Завод" but the rest. AB?

Re: Help with identifying maker's marks on this podstakannik, please.

I give you my best shot: The master's initials are П.Н.(Latin PN). That would be Akim Prokopij Nikitin in Moscow 1885-1897....or not! About the maker's mark being up side down in comparison to the assayer's mark is a pure coincident. The rumors tell that it was a rule/regulation that demanded an up ...

Re: Help with identifying maker's marks on this podstakannik, please.

No, it is Moscow. The assayer is Aleksandr Kudrin 1878-1882. But the maker ?????? What letters do you see?

The period is actually 1927-1958 because now we know it is a spoon weighting more than 10 grams

Re: Spoon

The Soviet oval hallmark with the androgyny's head tells us that your object is made in Moscow 1927-1954. Unfortunately the maker's mark is unknown to me. Never seen it before. Let's wait and see if somebody can come up with an answer.
BTW; what is it?

Re: Moscow HTT

Yes we do, but it is not HTT but Cyrillic НТГ (Latin NTG). He is Nikolay Gubyanov in Moscow 1868-1883. The assayer BC is either Veniamin or Victor Savinsky. Actually it is rather strange that two different assayers could use the same initials at the same time. A far fetched explanation I have heard ...

Yes it is, he used two punches Ш·Б and Ш.БЕГАК. He was born 1843 or 1857 and became master 1886 (- 1898) Why are you wondering?

Re: Fabergé - fake or not?

The set has no name other than Number 2. Anyway, it is OK and the crest belongs to the Russian family of Бобрищев-Пушкин (Bobrishchev-Puskin). The nine tines in the coronet indicate baron.

In general you are right, but as from the turn of the century it was not anymore mandatory to mark all detachable parts, some master continued with marking all parts others didn't. This hallmark was used 1908-17/26.
