Museum quality Imperial Russian silver Salt & Spoon Maria Semenova Moscow c1899
Superlatives fail to do justice to this amazing Imperial Russian silver-gilt and polychrome enamel salt and associated spoon in the original wooden silk and velvet lined presentation box. Bellied form on three ball feet, bead and cable border, the body decorated with variegated cloisonné enameling floral design of the highest quality. 84 Zolotnic silver standard, which equates to 875/1000 parts silver. By one of the great masters of the period, a vibrant miniature work of art. In fabulous unused condition and almost certainly has never been out of the box. There is one enamel cell, see picture number seven, where there are minor irregularities to the enamel from the original manufacturing process and not from later damage. Assay Master Ivan Lebedkin Moscow c 1899. Spoon: Nicholai Alexeyev Moscow c 1899. Salt: Height: 42mm Top diameter: 42mm Weight: 58.2 g. I have many stunning pieces of collector's silver in my shop, please look at my other items. I aim only to list antique silver items that are without damage, repair, alteration or undue wear. My silver pieces are ideal as special gifts, for collectors, for investors, or for resale by dealers. I provide clear descriptions and photos. The silver is photographed in flat natural light, but silver is so reflective that black spots from the camera and other reflections are sometimes unavoidable. Please check the dimensions of the object carefully as apparent size can be deceptive. Bank details provided on request. Sizes, weights etc are all approximate.
