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.
