RUSSIAN CLOISSONE ENAMEL SPOONS
Spoons with questionable marks
The spoons pictured on this page are probably old
Imperial Russian spoons.
There are 'fakes' on the antiques market.
It appears that most of the Russian 'fakes' are larger pieces and there
are no known Russian spoon 'fakes'.
But the markings on these spoons are not complete.
These are indeed beautiful looking spoons, but the marks are not
complete or are unreadable
1. spoon has a maker mark of 'AN' but no purity mark or other
2. Has an unreadable maker mark and it looks like the other marks have
3. Has an 88 purity mark which is incomplete and a maker mark which has
been overstamped making it unreadable
This spoon has legitimate Marius Hammer marks from Norway indicating it
is 900 silver
I have included it here because it looks so much like the Russian
spoons that I was even fooled until I saw the marks.
I am not really surprised that Marius Hammer made spoons that look like
the Russian spoons, but this is the first one which I have seen.
