An antique Russian Judaica Kiddush wine cup/footed beaker/goblet made from 84 zolotnik silver (.875 purity) by the silversmith Israel Eseevich Zakhoder of Moscow. The cup has a rolled lip, rings around the bottom and foot, and is hand incised all around with a church or synagogue front and back and a large tulip-like flower in between. There are two sets of hallmarks- on the inside of the foot and near the upper rim. They include Cyrillic letters for the maker Israel Eseevich Zakhoder, the silver fineness stamp 84 and a peasant woman's head (facing left which indicates pre-1908), and the assayer's mark of Lev Fridrikhovitch Oleks(1889-1898 Moscow).
The cup stands 85mm (3 3/8") high and is 50mm (2") diameter at the mouth. It weighs 49 grams. I left it unpolished. The foot has a couple of dents which can probably be straightened out.
