Russian Gold Hallmark Help, Please

Postby marnski » Wed Feb 08, 2017 3:49 pm

Can someone help me with the marks on this Russian malachite brooch and earrings? The marks on the brooch are clear to read, but I can't make out any of the marks on the earring wires. Thanks so much.

Hi,

You need to embed your images as very few people will click on links.

Dognose... I tried and tried and tried. tinypic isn't allowing me to upload for some reason, but postimage was working. I uploaded as 640 x 480 (for message bords and the preview here showed it wasn't working with [img], then I tried 320 x 240 with the same results... so I posted the links. Any suggestions?

oel - The link you posted was to a page with Dutch silver marks. I'm not sure what relevance this has to my question about Russian gold marks. Please clarify.

oel - I have done all that. My uploaded images are 640 x 480 and hosted on postimage. I followed all the instructions on this site and the Priview still does not show images. I run a Web store and am familiar with Photoshop, my pictures are good. I'm not sure what's wrong.

I appreciate your trying to help, but why not try clicking on the links which will show you the pictures?

OK - now it seems to suddenly be working. I did the same thing I did before, so I'm gue4ssing it was some sort of snafu, maybe since I haven't posted in some years. But whatever - here are the pics:

Hi,
Unfortunately, the marks appear to be faked and over-struck on genuine marks (red arrow).
St Petersburg city mark must not look like this, maker`s mark is poorly cut.
Assayer is missing. Even with limited space on jewelry legislation was strictly obeyed in regard of marks.
Hollow gold and silver was marked on back plate before assembling the piece, every link on e.g. bracelets.
Compare with the brooch I posted.

In a word, it`s not Imperial Russian jewelry.
Let`s wait what other members of the forum have to say.
Regards

Hi Marnski, why have you removed your images? Please have those replaced for the benefit of others. Thanks.

Oel.
