Yes, you are right - the maker mark is bad. But I do not see CL. Maybe EB - Eduard Brockhusen?

Re: What is it for?

In the 1960s-1970s, a wide assortment of Vietnamese silver items was actively exported to the USSR: trays, wine sets, teapots, tea strainers, sugar tongs, cutlery, spice sets, cigarette cases, ashtrays, etc. These items were made of silver 900, were of good quality and had a reasonable price.

Re: Russian Spoon

Qrt.S, you are absolutely right - this is Krollau. Unfortunately assay mark is poorly readable, and my eyes are no longer perfect ...
And my second mistake - the name of Artsybashev is Anatoliy (Анатолий) but not Alexander.

Hello!
Bergqvist worked in St. Petersburg but the box was made in Moscow. Most likely the maker is Yegor Vladimirov.
