Hi all -
the OP is stubborn and unreasonable - some "experts" can not read but spread some false informations.
drillo - please concentrate and read attentive what I write now and maybe reread what was written already!
The marks on your podstakannik are fake-phantasy-lookalike-phony in other words:false = not original
Dad tells you that everything is OK, authentic and as it should be (exept the FabergÃ© joke + enamel gimmick). He also tells you that the maker is: Kuzmitschev Antip Ivanowitsch. As we all he uses some sources to know who is who. In this sources most of the marks and names of the silversmiths who worked in a certain town are listed. Now you compare the mark of your object with the marks in the list. If one mark is identic with the shown ones and the timetable is correct (a smith working 1761 can not make an object assayed 1908 - do you understand?) than you have your man. As we have learned in the meantime every detail counts: Cyrillic or Latin letters, dots between the letters, form of the cartouche around the letters etc.
Here is the mark of Kuzmitschev (over the years he had 4 different marks)
Now take a closer look at the marks: do you see any dot between the letter A and the letter K? If you see no dot than there is no dot. Now look at the punch on the handle of your object: there is a dot between the letter A and the letter K. In Moscow existed never a silversmith A.K Conclusion: it is not Kuzmitschev - and your podstakannik was made by someone who did not exist.
I know, all this facts are not relevant for you (and others) - its a nice object and since dekades in the family. Fake? No way! Look at the quality, no dings or dents...
This was my last try - I give up.
