Russian spoons are very popular with today's collectors. First the silver produced under the Czar has some of the finest quality enameling that has ever been done and they are beautiful.
When the Communists first came to power, they
much of the silver/gold wealth of the nation, however some
fleeing aristocratic families were
to ship some of their treasures to the West.
In more current times, with the collapse of the Soviet Union, significant amounts of Russian silver suddenly became available and because of economic circumstances, much of this silver was shipped to the United States.
Currently wealthy Russians are re-buyng this silver in the marketplace.
I have broken this exhibit into several pages to organize it for maximum affect. Be sure to visit all of the exhibits.
