Unknown purpose

Hi all - found a bowl (H 13 cm, D 21 cm) with 3 ballfeet an 3 handles. Moscow 1908-17, 5th Artel. All parts orderly marked. What was the original use of this object? I use it for flowers :-) http://i529.photobucket.com/albums/dd334/Postnicov/p01-2.jpg http://i529.photobucket.com/albums/dd334/Postnic...

Re: С. П. ВУРГ mark on Spoon

These sheepish discussions off topic lead nowhere! If you feel better: your da man! I know nothing... There is still a problem pending - so use your exorbitant knowledge and explain to us nerds what is the matter with this spoons and this strange mark. At least try with own words...no more quotation...

Without experience you must believe in every book - where else you have the opportunity to see marks - mayby on the forum? By the way there a revised editions of P-L, Edition "UNVES" and "TRIO" 1995, ISBN 5-88682-002-7 and ISBN5-8872-003-0! 1995-1963 = 32 years of new information...

Dear Silverport - Maybe I did not understand your article 100 % but it is perhaps important to explain the connections of the different threads to you. As you might know no other silver/enamel/niello is so much faked than Russian Imperial objects. 98% of the queries on this board have with lookalike...

Re: risque cigarette case marked IES

Hi tugley -
all the informations you got are on point. Only the erotic enamel plaque is not original and was later added. In Russia a cigarette case with visible erotica was unthinkable.

Hi Piette -
there was a long discussion on this board about these marks. Just go back and read.
My opinion: both marks come always together and are fakes.

Re: unknown russian mark from about 1914

Hi Ringo - the spoon is real a riddle. Sometimes you find Russian spoons with engravings you do not understand easy - prisoners of war, Russian-Germans, presents, souvenirs with different, to us unknown backgrounds, etc. Here a photo for better understanding: http://i529.photobucket.com/albums/dd334...
