Christiansen ? Jugendstil

I think it is a pap bowl for little children and a christening gift. Because spoon and bowl are made by Bruckmann and the spoon is designed by Christiansen I wonder if the bowl is designed by Christiansen too. Does anybody know if Christiansen is the author?

Fabergé - fake or not?

From a friend I got some Russian spoons (Moscow, kokoshnik 1908). At first I was very sceptical, but since I found the pattern in the Fabergé-Catalogue supplied by Dad, I am pretty sure that the spoons are authentic. Am I right? Weight 126 grams, 21,5 cm long. Had that pattern a name or a number? Do...

Dear Traintime,

Re: Spoon Moscow unknown maker

Thank you AG2012, but my question was if F.C is PL 3030 though with point or if there is perhaps another maker with this mark.

Spoon Moscow unknown maker

Assayed by Andrej Kowalski 1844 in Moscow this spoon bears the maker's mark F.C. Is it PL 3030 though without point? Can anybody read something from the inscription though very tiny? I cannot make a better photo. Regards silverfan https://abload.de/img/rimg728482k4y.jpg https://abload.de/img/rimg728...

Vietnam cigarette-case ?

Not sure if solid silver because I cannot identfy the marks. The lid examined from the interior seems to be cast (but could be hammered too). The marks read "VIE T-NAM" over "D.X VD. Could anybody please tell me who made it. Regards silverfan https://abload.de/img/rimg7262blktb.jpg ht...

Re: Austrian Art Deco mocha set with Diana Mark

Thanks huszas76 and AG2012 for telling that Gustav or Gebrüder Resch were the maker of the mocha set. In the internet I found that during the monarchy they were court suppliers. Is this right? Starting from the style I suppose the set to be created between 1918 and 1923, very "Avantgarde" ...

Re: Austrian Art Deco mocha set with Diana Mark

Hi Qrt.S and all, sure this period fits the style better, but the Diana bears 3 and A for Vienna as I said. So the item must be produced before 1923 in Austria. To the left you see a little creamer and to the right a little sugar bowl, in the middle the mocha pot without lid. I have an idea how the ...

Austrian Art Deco mocha set with Diana Mark

These small pieces are marked with Diana 3 and A for Vienna, so they must have been produced before 1923. A very early Art Deco pattern!? Maker's mark reads GR. Who is it? The handle is marked with two A. For Vienna or another meaning? The little coffee pot has lost its lid. How could it have looked...

Re: Russian cup with saucer Petersburg 1857

Thanks again. Last questions. I think the marks on the cup to be punched (slight indentations on the opposite side, impression mark), the marks on the saucer are difficult to judge, because the bottom of the shield looks like the bottom around it, but there is a slight indentation too. When scrutini...

Re: Russian cup with saucer Petersburg 1857

Thanks Qrt.S and AG2012, I am "calmed". @AG2012: I do not understand the russian text after the double point and further down. What means SKURLOV in this context?

Re: Russian cup with saucer Petersburg 1857

Hi Qrt.S, when looking on the cup standing on the saucer the cyrillic letter N is the first letter and the other marks are upside down under the rim. Is it possible that when the maker, following the rule, marked the item first, the assay master marked to the right and to the left? Are the marks on ...

Re: Russian cup with saucer Petersburg 1857

Hi Q.rts. Thank you. Here some slightly better photos. The letters you describe are right, but I think the cyrillic N is the second letter. So it is perhaps another family name. I didn't find the maker in PL. Russian silver remains a difficult thing for me, so that I normally do not dare to buy with...

Russian cup with saucer Petersburg 1857

Some days ago I saw this cup marked St. Petersburg, assayed by Eduard Brandenburg 1857 with a maker's mark I could not yet identify. Two letters: cyrillic N and a letter like the G in the word Fabergé. I know the photos are very bad, but I can not do better at the moment (if I buy it, later better p...
