I do not read Russian but hopefully you can derive what you need from this listing. Unfortunately, my other reference states it is an unknown.

Cheers!

Dear Tom, To answer your question, I have just received a reply that states that the electrostatic method of hallmarking was introduced in 1965. Dear Bronia, Most likely this goblet has been made for years in Russia by the company that you noted and is listed in "Catalog of Hallmarks on Items i...

Thank you for furthering the understanding of Artels. Indeed there is far too little, I have found, that explains them well. As for Postnikova-Losseva, there is no error. The publication I have is dated 1995 but the dates listed with the maker's marks extend only to 1977. The other publication by Tr...

I see now the problem. You are looking in the dated Postnikova-Losseva. Catalog of Hallmarks on Items in Precious Metals, 1917-2000 (USSR and Russia) by Troepol'skaya, N., Moscow: 2006 is more current and instead of PL #6262, look to T#4336 263 that lists the .9KXK as 1979. As for the artels, you ha...

Dear Admin, I am working on getting a definitive answer for you for the time of use for the electrospark method of hallmarking but do not have one at this moment. Will post as soon as I do.

Soviet "Stencil" Mark

The design of this hallmark is authentic. It is necessitated by the process used to imprint the mark. The process is referred to as electrospark method of marking metal. It is based on the technological process of a electroerosive treatment to the metal. Essentially it is a release of electromagnet...

Also the 3 = 800 silver, I can't tell if the little mark behind her head is a W or K but = assayed in either Warsaw or Krakow, respectively.

Actually you can narrow the date of that hallmark to 1920-1931.

Delayed response

In case you are still wondering about your mark (this post was just brought to my attention via google alerts) you might like to know that your mark is indeed Russian, post 1992, and was assayed in St. Petersburg. The maker's mark confirms that the assay is St.Petersburg, stamped in 2001.As for the ...

CP maker

You are right about the mercury head. The maker's mark is from a Paris jeweler - Peconnet, Charles. His mark was valid from 1876 - 1902.

Hope that helps. Great comb!

Adrian,
If it helps, I agree with Wolfgang. Your case number and movement number are the same which indicates case and movement are still original. The date does appear as what I can see to also agree as 1897-98. It is a very nice piece. Enjoy it!

The Brand Name and Trademark Guide 1984 by JCK lists a company with the opposing C's and a crown similar to your mark but not exact as the Charlson Corp which they note as assumed to be out of business. Rainwater has no listing of this company. Not much more to go on but I agree that this is not Car...

Egyptian marks

Hi, Trev is correct in that the marks are after 1916 and that the mark is probably Cairo but may be Beni Souef but the worn punch takes the detail out enough that one cannot be 100% positive, but the mark on the is not an 18k mark but a 12k mark.

Hi Dax, If the marks are as you have drawn them, then there is some question as to if they are indeed Egyptian.
