Re: Help Identifying Marks on Danish Silver Tea Caddy

Sorry my friends. I take blame because I have misunderstood something . This sentence below is written by me in the link Trantime refers to: "His son Fredrik Fabritius' working period was 1787- 1823. But he died and his farther took over to 1823". The misunderstanding is that Fredric did n...

Re: Silver spoons

Yes of course Nikolay is his first name (lapsus scribae, sorry).
The mark on the other spoon is unclear. It is probably НЯ, but it could also be ИИ, НН, ИН, НИ or ? Therefore I didn't say anything about the master.

Re: Silver spoons

The maker on spoon number 1 is too unclear to give an answer. However, the spoon is made in St. Petersburg 1882-1898.
The maker of spoon number 2 is НЯ (Latin NYa) who is Dmitry Yanichkin in St Petersburg 1888-1895. The assayer AC is Aleksandr Sevyer 1892-1895.

Re: Help Identifying Marks on Danish Silver Tea Caddy

Yes, let's wait for the experts, meanwhile in my opinion the guardein mark is actually Christoper Fabritius's son Fredrik Fabritius, He co-operated with his father already from 1767. The maker's mark CH above 77 is Christian N. Hosøe in Copenhagen, born 1739 and dead 1812, master 1773-1808(12?). He ...

Re: Who is the maker ЕФ:С ?

Hi again AG2012 To my understanding the writer is asking for an explanation to why there is a 3 years gap (1841-1844) because it is known that Dimitry Tverskoy punched his mark in 1844 (and longer to 1851). This makes sense because as I already noticed, your picture above carries the year 1945 with ...

I happen to notice that on your picture's assaying mark is clearly seen ДТ and the year 1845,....but according to some source he died 1944 ????

Re: Who is the maker ЕФ:С ?

Now it gets interesting. Tverskoi assayed in St.P 1837-1851. Where from is the information that he died 1844? You see I happen to have soot marks of Tverskoi from 1837 to 1850. Ivanov claims the assaying years. An explanation would be appreciated.

Re: Who is the maker ЕФ:С ?

Thank you AG2012.
Yes I read Ivanov. However, take a look at P#1280 it says Efim Sidorov 1833-1841 and that made me wonder. The year on your basket is 1845 and on "my" spoon 1847, so the mark must be Silantev's. Postnikova must be wrong.

Re: Who is the maker ЕФ:С ?

Sorry, but I got picture. It is in 72 dpi. only. I tried to enhance it but without success. I lager picture wouldn't help. The initials are ЕФ:С. The assayer is ДТ and of less importance. The assaying year is 1839.

Who is the maker ЕФ:С ?

Hi, I face a problem with this Russian maker's mark ЕФ:С in St.Petersburg. https://i.postimg.cc/BQJ88jNV/jevstafij.jpg Different Sources give contradictory information. It is either Yevstafy Silantiev 1810-1847 or Efim Sidorov 1833-1841 in St. Petersburg. I have seen a spoon dated 1847 with this mar...

Nice filigree box made by Vasily Popov (ВП) 1816-1868 and assayed by Ivan Avdeyev (ИА) 1852-1862. Both active in Moscow.

Re: Weird combination of marks, help to decipher? 875 silver Jardiniere

The Russian import mark was used 1898-1907. It doesn't necessarily mean that it was made then but it cannot be newer that 1907. The Art Noveau/Jugend style dates it to around the turn of the century.

Re: Weird combination of marks, help to decipher? 875 silver Jardiniere

The fineness of 875 equals with 84 zolotnik, which is the lowest fineness that could be exported to former Russia. The Russian import mark confirms this fineness. The mark the head and sledge hammer with 875 is a remarking made by the Soviet authorities enabling the object to be sold in former Sovie...

Re: Silver?

I also believe it is silver plated/nickel silver, e.g. 80 gram used on 12 spoons. The teapot mark leads my taught to Norway. In Oslo was a silversmith by the name of Johan Ludvig Sæther, active 1924-1963. His mark was a teapot, but on silver. Is it him or not is difficult to say because here we have...

Re: Silver snuffbox.

Please reread what I wrote or see below Since the box lacks the maker's mark but is assayed it indicates that it is imported. See it this way: Since there is a fineness mark (84) it must have been assayed. The fineness mark is punched by the assayer in the assaying office. In addition, when it has a...
