Silver spoons

Postby PW333abc » Mon Nov 30, 2020 5:02 pm

Hello!

I would be very thankful for help.
I have 2 spoons wich I think i silver.

I wonder if the mark with the crown has anything to do with royalty?

Best regards

Hi,
Silver standard .875 (old standard 84 zolotnik) assayed in St Petersburg by AC (Aleksandr Sevr) in 1895.
Cannot identify maker`s initials.
Heraldic crown with seven pearls is for baron, not royalty.

Hello!

Thank you very much for the answers.

Can the spoons be made for a Baron, given the crown? And that the spoons have been in the Baron's possession?

The maker on spoon number 1 is too unclear to give an answer. However, the spoon is made in St. Petersburg 1882-1898.
The maker of spoon number 2 is НЯ (Latin NYa) who is Dmitry Yanichkin in St Petersburg 1888-1895. The assayer AC is Aleksandr Sevyer 1892-1895.

Hi,
Qrt.S is right about initials Н Я.(The same on both spoons?)They belong to Nikolay YANICHKIN Dmitrievich (Николай ЯНИЧКИН Дмитриевич) who worked at 3abalkan, No18 (3абалканский, 18) until 1895 when last recorded.
In regard of the coat of arms; must be new money nobility who even bought titles (pay attention to sailing boat and Staff of Hermes, Latin Mercury, messenger of gods and symbol of commerce).

Yes of course Nikolay is his first name (lapsus scribae, sorry).
The mark on the other spoon is unclear. It is probably НЯ, but it could also be ИИ, НН, ИН, НИ or ? Therefore I didn't say anything about the master.

Additionally to the coat of arms, has the spoon also got an inscription on the handle?

Thank you in advance for your answer!
