RUSSIAN ARROW SPOONS
by Wayne Bednersh
These tiny demi spoons feature an arrow look. note there are two
different spoons pictured.
(note: to me they look like the feather used on arrows, but some people
think that they just represent generic feathers)
The backs are engraved with flowers in both cases.
They all have silver 84 marks. The four gold plated ones were made by
"N6" (the russian letter looks like a 6)
The silver one was made by "AIM" and features an 84 with a sailboat mark
I suspect that these spoons are ca 1840 - 1850 as this style was
popular in Russian at that time. I have seen others dated during that
