Re: Please help me to read the mark on my strainer.

The guardein i.e assayer is either Jens Kahrs or his son Ditmer/Ditmar Kahrs, more likely the latter. He assayed in Bergen gullsmedaslaug in NORWAY together with his father Jens 1765-1781. After his father's death 1781 Ditmer change his guardein mark to just DK as from 1781-1788. He dies 21.5.1788. ...

Re: Russian Spoons 1890 Moscow - Maker?

Please note what I wrote in my previous input: Maybe he made it 31.12.1889 but assayed it in 1890 ;-)))) Russian legislation did not force any registered master to assay at all, but if he aimed to sell the object, it could not be sold without having it assayed, approved and legally marked. That was ...

Re: Russian Spoons 1890 Moscow - Maker?

The maker KK could be Konstantin Yegorovich Kiyazev in Moscow 1885-1889. However, there is a minor inconsistency with the assaying year 1890. Maybe he made it 31.12.1889 but assayed it in 1890 ;-)))) Sorry but I have no better alternative.

Re: Finnish Spoon with W5 Date??

The year is 1926. Sometimes W is used instead of V. The maker JHP is Juho Hesekiel Pekuri active in the town of Oulu 1884-1943. The Jugend (Modern Style) pattern is a variation of a still today popular pattern called "Suomi" originated from the turn of the century.

Re: Russian Silver Cigarette Case

Sorry, Ivan Futikin is out of question. He was active 1863-1897. The right looking kokoshnik was used 1908-1926- This eliminates Futikin. The problem remains, who is the maker and what are the initials: фH/Hф or ИФ/ ФИ? The only possible prospect I found is Philpp Nadis (фH) in Moscow 1897-197, but ...

@AG2012
Mind my saying, but I disagree. Johann Bunzell marked either BUNTZELL or JTB (Johann Theodor Buntzell) not JB.

Re: Unusual early mark - David Andersen

Don't know about any light..., but David Andersen was born 1843 and died 1901. The company was founded in 1876. The mark on your spoon was used 1888-1939. The fineness is expressed in promille as from 1892. That means that the object cannot be older than that. Since it carries the mark DA, I assume ...

madej is right, it is Warsaw in Poland and the assayer OC is very well known Osip Sosnkovsky 1862-1896. He is also known as Josef Stanislavovich S., marking IS 1852-53 and Ios S. marking IS 1850-1862. Sosnkovsky never worked in MInsk in Belarus. This is a common misunderstanding related to the Minsk...

Re: Scent bottle

Yes, it looks authentic, but....I little bit suspicious, the felling of Russia is not "right". Dalman made undoubtedly cloisonne objects, but still...AG2012 is absolutely right in his statement regarding Russian cloisonne objects. Well, it is only my personal opinion.

Re: Large soviet (USSR) ring, possibly agate

Your ring is made in Sverdlovskij juvelirnuj zavod i.e Sverdlovsk's jewelry factory in 1977. Its silver fineness is 916/1000. About the stone, let's wait for somebody else to pop in and tell us. Gemstones are not my area, sorry.

Re: Help with country. town and maker

Yes, Aleks is right, it is Viipuri/Viborg in former Finland but nowadays in Russia (1945->) on the Carelian isthmus. The maker's mark is GRB and that is Gottfried Rudolf Bauman 1828-1837. I haven't seen Viborg's town mark like that before, nice find.
