Probably French

Postby Kirils » Sat Mar 23, 2019 7:49 am

Hello. Have this beautiful art nouveau set, which is probably from France in my opinion, but it was imported to the Russian Empire. Does anyone know this second mark? This is the best photo that I could take. To me, it looks like a feeding dog or a wolf. I saw this mark a long time ago, but don't remember where.

it is German, exported to Russia, produced since 1900 by Koch & Bergfeld, Bremen and designed by Hugo Leven, model no. 25600, also called "Bremer Lilie". There is no maker's mark. The standing bear, often discussed in this forum, is supposed to be the mark for silver 875 (like in Switzerland). The other mark is the russian import mark for Riga.

Thank you a lot. Never thought that it could be Germany.
