Hi Victoria -
If you start buying Russian silver or in your case Russian enamel cloisonnÃ© you must know at least the essentials. If not - you are lost to the numerous existing and on online auctions sold "contemporary look alikes" - better: fakes
Ask yourself some questions:
Do I know what enamel clausonnÃ© is and how it is made? Do I know the differences between original objects and contemporary objects?
Do I know the Russian marking system, can I distinguish between fake marks and authentic marks?
Do I know the Russian enamel superstar Maria Semionova, her marks, her work, which technique she used, what are her typical enamel colours?
Do I know that real objects of her are as seldom as a jackpot in a lottery?
etc, etc, etc.
If you have one or more "NoÂ´s" as answer than it is best to stop buying Russian "antiques" !
If you realy care for Russian Silver than you should start reading the forum from A-Z and not buying...
