Hello!
This is Vilno (Вильно, Вильнюс), assayer Alexander Artsybashev (Александр Арцыбашев), maker Shmuel Begak (Шмуль Бегак).
Regards.

Mind my saying, but in my eyes the assayer's initials seems to be AK not AA. That would be Aleksander Krollau in Vilna 1891-1899. In my records Artsibaschev was in Moscow in 1895.

Qrt.S, you are absolutely right - this is Krollau. Unfortunately assay mark is poorly readable, and my eyes are no longer perfect ...
And my second mistake - the name of Artsybashev is Anatoliy (Анатолий) but not Alexander.
