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?

Re: Spoon

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 ...

@Krisztián
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?

Yes, Dad is right, I made a mistake. It is Musin-Pushkin. My Russian is not good enough and it is late...sorry, nobody is perfect....

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.

Re: Russian Silver Server Mark Identity

Yes, the mark is not good, but it has some measures anyway, The official ones are 6x3 millimeter! (very unlike) But 4x2mm is the common size and I mean 4x2. If it is something else, you know what it is.

Re: Russian import mark on English spoon

Indeed interesting. This is the first time I see a Russian import mark on an English spoon. Anyway the import mark was introduced in 1882 and used in this shape to 1899. Riding St. George is in the middle and that means Moscow. Actually 88 zolotniki is not 925/1000 but close enough. It is 916,67. 92...

Re: Ref Book

@Goldstein Goldstein look in the mirror and remember the past before you write anything. If you knew what is going on "behind the curtains" you would be quiet. FYI! AG2012 just gave the link to upload Postnikova, no problem with that. Here it is again; http://akamd.ru/forum/forum258/topic1...

Excellent advises from AG2012. However, I'd like to a 5th advice:

Re: Ref Book

Please don't tell me that the author is G. Watts. If so, the books is a poor copy of Postnikova full of misspellings, insufficient, incorrect information and faults. Use the search function and you will find more about this book.
