Hi
Your quote is from the book: Russian Silver mid 19th cent - beginning of 20th century, not Goldstein!

Re: Snuff box with unidentified origin

It could be anything. Kindly ask the box holder to clean the marks and send you new photos of cleaned marks.

Re: Postnikov

Forgot to mention that Postnikov was awarded the Court Supplier title in 1877. It gave him the right to use the Double-Headed Eagle mark. There is none here, but there is actually not enough space for it either, so maybe he didn't punch it, who knows? This is after all a spoon only.

Re: Postnikov

Hi Peter, Yes, the assayer is Ivan Lebedkin in Moscow 1898-1914, no question about that. But is it Andrey Postnikov's factory (1868-1917) or not, is a bit trickier question. Most likely it is Postnikov, but there are a few unlikely alternatives. Anyway, I would still say it is Postnikov. The spoon i...

Re: Swedish spoon - please help to identify the marks.

No problem, good sharp photos.

The town crest is three trees i.e. Uddevalla/SE. There we have Johan Patrick Ljungström, (IPL) active 1808-1830. The year mark is I3 and that is 1815.

Re: Can Anyone Help Identify Marks on Rectangular Box

Very worn/bad punch. If you assume that the first letter would be I and AG2012 guess on Stockholm 1815, the only alternative is IWZ. That would be Johan Wilhelm Zimmermann 1785-1804/17. However, no guarantees given, it is a shot in the dark.

Re: Snuff Box No 3 - Photo Showing Box Opened

The Swedish oval import mark was introduced 1913 (not 1812) and abandoned 1988. It is a pure speculation to guess what the other marks are. They are too worn. The only fact regarding the other marks is that they are from a Swedish point foreign marks.

It is a Swedish import mark, but where from is a good question.

Re: Help with marks on the spoon

No problem my good man, you have a very nice Finnish silver spoon. Indeed a nice find. The upper mark is the Finnish control mark, the Grand Duchy of Finland's crown in a heart shaped frame. The second mark should be the town mark of Helsinki, but the person who made the punch has mistaken between H...

Re: Gold cigarette case

@VicM52 Unfortunately not much sense. At that time Kexholm was a small town more a village around the old fortress in the middle of "nowhere" Somehow I imagine the "regiment " being a platoon of 4-5 men, sounds ridiculous. @AG 2012 Checked the combinations you suggested, but no l...

Re: Gold cigarette case

This is interesting. OK for Warsaw but who is this JH. Moreover, please clean the left and right mark e.g. with a toothpick or brush. If the case is from Warsaw, the left mark would be a trade mark. It could help in identifying the maker. I have pretty good list of Warsaw's master, but this JH is un...

Re: Gold cigarette case

While waiting for more sharp pictures especially from the marks, let's assume what we have. Yes, a golden case in 583,33/1000 fineness. A left looking kokoshnik giving us the time span 1899-1908. The initials AP(?). There are only one assayer fitting the time span. This would be Aleksandr Romanov, a...

Re: 800M 875M

@silverfan Simply because there is no maker's mark and there is a clear reason for it!! The photo I referred to is in your own input 2.20pm. It differs from amena's picture because your object has a fineness mark 900M and a maker's mark. Amena's doesn't have it. That is the main difference. Maybe we...

@silverfan Yes, I know that and I stated in my input that it is a typical mark used in Belgium for reasons I mentioned earlier. There is no maker's mark on this object. However, on silverfan's picture 2.20 pm there is a maker's mark in addition to the 900M mark. Please reread my first input on 12.46...

Re: Russian Silver and Enamel Cigarette case tsarist era

@Ubaranda
Thank you, now the patronymic name is finally settled. The problem is that different sources mention different names. Postnikova states Fyodorovich, Ivanov Fridrikhovich etc. etc. No doubts anymore, it is Фридрихович, thanks again.

Re: Russian Silver and Enamel Cigarette case tsarist era

A very nice cigarette case! Agree with AG2012. The assayer is Лев Федорович Олекс (Fyodorovich) 1889-1904 in Moscow and the maker the mentioned one.

Re: 800M 875M

I would appreciate if somebody could show an 800 mark followed with a capital M in the same frame without a town mark and also verify the maker. Not separate 800 and M marks and no other marks on the object. Then we could compare the marks and see what that leads to. A good example would be a "...

Re: 800M 875M

See here. In case of a separate M-mark, I would agree on Germany, but as you see, within the same frame! Haven't seen a maker's mark being a part of a fineness mark.

Re: 800M 875M

Sorry, sorry I meant M of course, my mistake. The M is typical for Belgium. Please note that the M is not a separate mark bot within the same frame with 800
