If I remember correctly that is a Soviet "hallmark" for stainless steel from 1950-60. The Ц-1-37 is the price "Tshena" 1 ruble 37 kopek.

Hi, All.

Next mark is the price. Ort.S is right.

A little History :

In 1920 has been nationalized and began to be called «the Factory of Agricultural Machine-building №10», but owing to a lack of fuel and raw materials it has been suspend in 1922. After a long break factory has begun work again. In 1926, under requests of workers, the factory has been renamed in " Factory of a name of Shevchenko".

In July, 1945, the factory has started reconstruction of existing industrial buildings and installation of the dismantled equipment of factory of firm «August Wellner Söhne AG» (manufacture of tableware and metal ware). Therefore the first product patterns were from «August Wellner Söhne AG» )))
