Seller: Top-Rated Seller 4744366 (3,287) 99.9%, Location: Andover, Massachusetts, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 202344580526 In 1896, Tsar Nicholas II (1868-1918) issued an edict and a new system of marking was introduced, known as the Kokoshnik mark (a cartouche containing a woman’s head looking left flanked by the silver fineness, usually 84, and the assayer’s initials). After 1908 the mark changed, the head facing right and the assayer’s initials replaced by a Greek letter representing the city in which the assay office was located. This system continued until the Revolution. Russian Imperial silver is very appreciated for its quality and peculiar style, often sober in design but finely decorated. Enamel is the most distinctive feature of Russian silver: multicolour cloisonné, champlevé, plique-a-jour and the peculiar niello can be found on a variety of items such as cigarette cases, tea services, tankards, beakers and kovshes (traditional Russian drinking vessels). Another peculiar and desirable characteristic of 19th century Russian silver is the Pan-Slavic revival, featuring geometric and stylized motifs inspired by historical items.
