Pair of Russian Silver Spoons 1883 Moscow
This attractive silver spoons are made 1883. They have a delicate shape with handle ending with a small knob. These lovely knobs of the most Russian spoons remind me of the church towers of the Orthodox Russian Churches.
The bowls show an intricate abstract engraving.
The hallmark is on the side of the handle: possible MK (makers mark, worn), 1883 (dating), 84 for 84 Zolotniki silver purity (equal to 875/1000) and the town mark of Moscow (St. George slaying the dragon).
The spoons are in very good condition showing only minor wear. They have 5 inches in length each and weight 18 gram and 16grams.
Russian silver is nowadays treasured. Beautiful pieces and a good asset!
