We cannot ad pics due to the time frame of this sale. It is close to ending. However, we have taken a microscopic view and we can see that there is a hallmark. The letters I.C. (Russian Cyrillic Alphabet) which, per antique mark books & sites belongs to Grigory Sbitnev who was a silversmith in Moscow circa 1800's (Much of his works are found to be of the date of or about 1893). I can tell there is another mark, and potentially some other parts that are obliterated. We are not sure what they say since we cannot read the mark in its entirety.
Also we were advised by another buyer that this is Fedorovskaja (Fedorovskaya) and not Vladimir. We researched this, and can confirm this statement to be true.
We try to be as honest as possible. We are not perfect, but when we know a fact, we feel it is important to communicate so that you are informed.
