Spoon and Fork Set, Russian?

Postby NigelJK » Mon Jan 10, 2011 11:28 am

I have been given a Spoon and Fork set. The person giving it to me was sure that it was French and from around 1804. I have researched the marks on the items and have I think discovered that they are in fact Russian. The marks read as:

R & C indistinct mark after the C then an 8 and then a 4 then the city mark(?) which is a Bow.
The makers name is long and I think in Cyrillic, and starts CN.

I've not found a match for the city Mark after scouring the internet and I think the 84 is a pre-standardisation Russian 84.
An help identifying these is much appreciated.

Hi,
Are you able to post a more close up picture of the marks? Then you will get better answers. :-)
Regards,

Thanks for the welcome.
These shots were as close as I could get. If I blow them up they are very indistinct. They were taken using a DSLR and a macro lens, but it does not allow very close ups. Any advice on how to get clear images much appreciated.

I didn't see the article as these are definitely solid silver. I'll carry out a bit more research as the donor was sure they were French (and after reading the article thats were I'll look).

Thanks for your help so far.

They are French silverplate, suggest you look at the article.
