Sazikov II

Postby Goldstein » Tue Oct 03, 2017 7:54 am

Hi all -

in the last Sazikov discussion we learned that Sazikov always marked large objects with his court suppliers mark (eagle mark) - small or "minor" objects only with his initials ИC, with one dot, two dots or without dots. Cutlery are small objects in my understanding - but always are marked with court suppliers mark (eagle mark). Why?

Yes we have learned that Sazikov punched the eagle with his whole name mark. However, we have also learned that Sazikov sometimes, but not always, also punched the court supplier mark/eagle with the small initial mark with or without dots. This is clearly stated in Voldaeva's book with good examples.

But to your question; How big is "big", what is "small"? Heaven knows the measures of big and small. It seems to be a matter of opinion and very difficult to express in weight measurements or measure of length etc..

You have misunderstood. I spoke about short mark (initials) on minor parts of a item. At the same time on a main part of item there is a full-name mark with an eagle. For example: teapot and teapot cover.
