Hi AG2012 and Qrt.S,
Thank you for your comments. I am not surprised or disappointed. It's what I expected. I do have a couple comments and questions though, if you have another moment.
Regarding the kokoshnik mark, yes, I can see many differences; shape of cartouche, font for 88, relative size of alpha mark, and different profile - mine even appears to have a beard :). Thank you for posting these side-by-side.
Regarding 'guilloche.' Yes, I know what guilloche is and used the word in this case (apparently wrongly) to refer to linework in the silver under the clear enamel: parallel lines under the enamel on the stem and a series of linked squares under the enamel of the bowl. I meant to differentiate it from the cloisonne more typical of Russian-style spoons. Is there a term for this? Just "enamel on silver"?
Neither of you mentioned the style, which seems unique to me. I don't know of other spoons with a similar type of design, and although the marks are fake, I don't think the spoons were originally made to be fake Faberge, but rather had original marks removed and the fakes added. There is a mark in the bowl of one of the spoons that looks as though it might have been a hallmark rubbed off. It is not clear enough for a picture though. I don't know of anything like them, design-wise, and if you do, I'd appreciate any insight you might have.
My comparison to Scandinavian work was to what I think of as "cookie cutter" spoons, that are beautiful on the front, smooth and unadorned on the back and all in a set exactly the same size and shape reflecting careful machining. I was comparing that exactitude to the slight differences in each of these spoons, which show they were hand made. It wasn't meant to be a put down of Scandinavian enamel, of which I have many examples.
Qrt.S - I don't know what other thread you refer to. I did wash the spoons with soap and water and gave them a light rubbing with a silver cloth. I haven't polished them yet. They were filthy though, and the design is deep, so they might suffer more cleaning.
