Ornate Pair Of 1886 Imperial Russia Silver 84 Zarfs Cup Holders - 416 Grams For Sale

Ornate Pair of 1886 Imperial Russia Silver 84 Zarfs Cup Holders - 416 grams

Estate of Sheremetev Descendents - Russian Nobility

A beautiful pair of large Imperial Russian silver zarfs -- cup holders that once held glass or porcelain tumblers for tea. Marked "84" -- the Russian silver standard (slightly less silver content than sterling). Also bears an assayer's mark and date of 1886 and the city hallmark for Moscow (St. George Slaying the Dragon) and the manufacturer's hallmark in Cyrillic characters.

Ornate openwork with Aesthetic Movement styling. Phoenix birds flank cartouches on the sides for engraving a monogram (never used). Thumb rests at the top of the handles. Appears the handles may have had a gold wash at some time but little of this remains. Each zarf weighs 208 grams.

Interesting history - thezarfs came from the estate of a prominent Washington, D.C. businessman, a descendent of a very prominent name in Russian royalty and wealth(Sheremetev) whose family fled Russia in 1917 when the last tsar was overthrown in the Russian Revolution.

Each is 4 inches tall. The openings for the glassesare 2.75 inches in diameter.

Excellent condition - no chips, cracks or repairs.A couple of the "feet" have a slight inward bend - very inconspicuous.
