Re: Russian hallmark?

Not French. I don't think it is a hallmark at all. More likely a maker's mark. is it actually a silver mark at all ? In your previous message you mentioned that "it comes from an ex. Soviet state". What state may I ask or were you satisfied with only "ex Soviet origin"!? Unfortun...

Re: Russian hallmark?

Sorry to say this, but on these sites it has been stated many times that "Believe only in your eyes on your own knowledge. If you you don't know what you intend to buy, don't!" Unfortunately the seller usually tells you incredible stories of an objects origin. Only in order to distract you...

Forgot to tell that Ф and Ж (not sch: Ш) are most like journeyman's marks.

Re: USSR: sch/f, 7, TJ, E + star + 916

:-))))) nice doing dognose. "TJ7" would be 1967 while 7TJ is 1977---at least to my understanding. Silver year marking in Soviet is usually quit logic, but in some cases like this it might cause confusion.

Re: Early Denmark?

I'm not either sure, but this mark (CO?) could belong to Christian Olsen, active in Copenhagen 1794-1804. He made spoons. Danish marks are sometimes difficult to "understand". In this case the three tower town mark is missing making it difficult to give en absolute answer.

Re: Help with maker on this Tea Strainer

Yes, it is a Danish strainer made by Carl M Cohr's (CMC) sølvvarefabrik (silver factory) 1860-1987. The other mark DA stands for "Dansk Arbeit" ("Danish Work"). It is a quality mark. Here its history http://www.cohrsilver.dk/cohr/

It is somehow known in which countries fakes are made but back trace this cross is mission impossible more or less.

Re: Russian Icon

Sometimes different sources give different information depending on where from the author has got the info. Unfortunately there are good books and poor books. What is your source for both assayer and maker? I'm asking this because Stepanov didn't work in St. Petersburg but in Moscow, so? Anyway, Ale...

Yes in Cyrillic and Russian, but mine is how the name is written in Latvian. They use mostly Latin letters.

Re: A curious find...

A minor problem, there is no assaying mark on this lighter....strange! What might that mean? Anyway, made in Riga in Latvia by Ivans Masalskis (IM) 1883-1889.

Re: V.Morozov maker's marks?

@AG2012

The candlestick is made around the turn of the century. At that time it was no longer mandatory to punch marks on all detachable parts. Sometimes they carry marks but not always.

Re: V.Morozov maker's marks?

Vladimir Ivanovitsh Morozov was Ivan's son. He worked in the workshop of firm Morozov with the other masters. After his father's death in 1885 he continued the business to 1917. The point here is, however, that he made silver tableware and not only cutlery like you claim. Reread what Postnikova says...
