Set of 6 Russian Silver Fiddle pattern spoons | Set #2 | Second Kokoshnik mark | 448 grams

Product Description
Set of 6 Russian Silver Fiddle pattern spoons

Each spoon is 21.5cms (8 1/2") long

In excellent condition
There is no engraving or crests

Why is Russian Silver marked 84?
Russian silversmiths divided their weight measure for silver into standard lots known as “zolotniks”. Pure silver consisted of 96 zolotniks. The “84” that is stamped on the these spoons means that their silver content is 875/1000 (84/96).

Russian silver should be treated like sterling silver, though Russian silver is a different alloy than British or American silver, which is on the sterling standard, and as a result, it’s a lot tougher. It takes much higher detail in casting and doesn’t wear down – what you’re looking for in Russian silver is sharp relief, beautiful contrasts, and not a lot of wear. Russian silver has crisp detail and a lot of drama. As a result, it never looks quite the same way as sterling, which has such a soft look and glow.
