Re: I look this pair of salt shakers was made in Norway, imported to Sweden, help to identify the maker?

Unfortunately there is no maker,s mark on the pictures only the Norwegian town mark for Bergen (seven dots) telling us that the saltcellars are made later than 1870. The maker,s mark might be found elsewhere on the cellars. Take a new look.

Re: Interesting find

@AG2012 Hi, 4. ``Pure silver dipped in pure gold`` is wrong; it is 875 fineness. 5. Klingert factory had the ``appointment to the court`` warrant, but that does not mean the particular set was made for the court You could have mentioned that spoons are silver 875/1000 but the spoons are electrolytic...

Re: Interesting find

Well stories are stories. The letter is written with imagination during a period when hardly anybody knew what was going on in the USSR even less about Russian silver. There is absolutely nothing indicating that the spoons have anything to do with the Russian court. The text in the box's lid is only...

Re: Russian child cup

Your "charka" (vodka cup) is not Russian made but imported goods to Russia. Therefore it lacks a maker's mark. The Russians didn't have an import mark before 1882. The importer brought the goods to the assaying office. There the fineness was checked and if it was not less than 84 zolotnik ...

Re: A fish server, maker KP

Yes in Cyrillic letters KP (Latin KR). He is a Finn, Karl Reijonen in St Petersburg 1884-1908. The assayer AC is Aleksandr Tomasovskij Sevjer 1892-1895 or 1897 (ending year unclear).

Re: What is the makers mark? Norwegian?

Yes it is Kuppittaan Kulta's export mark to Norway only (the S in the end and seldom seen). Kupittaa/Kuppis is a district of the town of Turku/Åbo. Kupittaan Kulta simply means Kupittaa's Gold.

Re: Help appreciated with identifying Moscow maker's marks, plz./Vol.II

Yes, the initials must be С·Ш, but it cannot be Schebanov because he never assayed in Moscow. The assayer is in my opinion Sergey Aleksandrovich Schostak 1883-94.

Re: Marks Silver Gilt Cufflinks

Fabergé in St Petersburg punched usually on "ФАБЕРЖЕ" without K. However, there are a few exceptions. The round punch looks a bit odd. It should measure 1,25 mm Ø. The round kokoshnik is used as a separate punch on detachable parts. The oval kokoshnik's measures are correct 4x2 mm. Thielem...

Re: Russian Spoon

Yes Brandenburg's and Blomberg's marks are similar but the town mark is the separating factor also sometimes the working periods. The town mark on your spoon is Riga's. BTW, there is no fighting here only differing opinions now and then, but never mind them. Feel free to post whenever you need an an...

Re: Lodigt Standard Spoon, Maker GP & Sunburst Mark

Trondheim it is, not doubts about that. The maker GP is Georg Fredrik Adolph Pefferkorn. He became master 31.5.1837. He was also the last alderman in the Trondheim laugh (guild) 1865-1869. He died 12.4.1880. Also the mark GFP was used.

The assayer МЧ is Mihail (Aleksandr) Pavlovitch Churmasov in Moscow 1841-1852. To my understanding he also marked AЧ but I am not sure about it. Maybe somebody could verify?

The mark to the right is Christiania's town mark (Oslo) in Norway. The maker's mark is CM and that is a Swede; Carl Andreas Mordt/Morth from Halmstad/SE, born 1767. He arrived to Christiania in 1794 and became master there 28.6.1796. He was alderman in "Gullsmedslauget i Christiania" (the ...

Re: Unidentified Makers Mark

Yes, it is Danish in my opinion too. I would bet on Jens Jensen in Copenhagen. He was born around 1805, became master 11.5.1833 and was still alive in 1877. He made cutlery etc.
