Re: Help with Russian Silver Snuff Box

Help with Russian Silver Snuff Box

I wonder, Can anyone assist with pretty much all of this box. 1/. What does in English the wording on lid say? 2/.Does anyone recognise maker, I am assuming it will be late 19th century. 3/. The scenes to the lid and base, are they of anything that anyone recognises? https://i.postimg.cc/N0B16dHm/P2...
