Re: Is this real silver?

Hi Postnikov. In 1908 Latvia was a part of Russia. At that time there there was no export. The Latvian marks have appeared at the period of Soviet Russia. Imperial silver being in territory of Latvia to WWII marked usual (local) mark. The Time of Troubles. Almost as in Poland. I will repeat, it is a...

Re: Is this real silver?

Hi all. The citation presented by me from A.N.Ivanov's book (“Gold and silversmiths in Russia (1600 — 1926)”). The book is written by the expert for experts. For the statement there were probably facts. A mark's photo not from the book. "С.П.Бург" brand as we see, meets only together...

Re: Is this real silver?

Evening, Anyway, the soot mark looks exactly the same as Postnikova #1154 except for the second dot mark which is superseded with a colon. In other words the mark you show Dad but with a colon. However, I would be interested in knowing what makes you think it is a trade mark/manufacturer's mark. If...

Re: Is this real silver?

About the town mark of St Petersburg. However there is one very very rare mark used between about 1826 and 1876. It is: С.П:БУРГЪ. After 1908 another mark drops in С.П.БУРГЪ. Please note the change. The colon is changed into a dot (.). Hi. Thanks Qrt.S. You have correctly understood m...

Re: Is this real silver?

Hi all.

Compare brands of this period. Before 1840 punch of St.-Petersburg in a circle. 84 in a rectangle. Next years - in an octagon. 84 has the strange form. How think? Itself I understand what to forge a spoon senselessly.

Re: Fakes — Discuss or Surpress?

Hi all, May i say about my opinion? The opinion of new member of forum. You speak correctly, on the one hand. With another, what doesn't allow to the fakemakers to study under the same books which are read by you? Professional fakemakers study very much original material . You don't teach them. I co...

Re: Fake Russian enameled cup?

Hi Qrt.S Where I spoke about variants assayers' punches? I spoke about variants of punches of silver masters. Russian silvermasters used different punches. And quality of work not at all was as at Сhlebnikov. Anyway, I consider punches are original, on this photo. You consider their false. This is ...

Re: Fake Russian enameled cup?

Hi, Postnikov. I will not argue. Though, Postnikova - authority. Anyway, this subject is original. Set of letters such as you have specified «ИЯГ». The Dot — not the most important thing in this case. There could be variants. Rare enough combination of letters. We can't assert definitely that t...

Re: Fake Russian enameled cup?

Hi Daisy.

I think, it is an original subject. Hallmarks normal. The assay master Smirnov Aleksander Alekseevich, Moscow 1878-1895. Silvermaster Ivan Yakovlevich Grishin (1892-1901 activ)
Russian letters " И Я Г "

Best regards.

Re: A snuffbox

Good afternoon. Excuse for my English.
This "little snuffbox" is a fake. The hallmark (56) is fantasy. "Head" in a hallmark (oval) should be vertically.

Best Regards.
