Antique plique a jour enamel demi tasse spoon with Russian touch marks. The marks on this spoon are 88 standard with kokoshnik head facing right ( for 1908 to 1917), with small cursive "a" ( St. Petersburg). Also maker's mark in rectangular lozenge, K plus the cyrillic F, which is flattened out oval with a line running vertically through it. This mark can be associated with the St. Petersburg workshop of Carl Faberge'. Maybe, maybe not. I am selling it as a nice antique plique enamel spoon of unknown maker. The little spoon is 4 inches long. Hand forged with a twist handle and demi sized bowl. The Plique a jour enamel is 1.25 inch on the top, formed with twisted wire in the typical Russian manner. The enamel is in primary colors, blue, yellow, purple, red, green and cobalt. The enamel is in good condition. No cracks, no losses. Spoon has a lightly gilt bowl in good condition. This is a pretty example of old plique a jour technique, which is enameling without background metal.
