Imperial Russian Silver Cloisonne Spoon. This gorgeous spoon (Im not sure of its exact purpose) is made from high gauge silver of 87.5% purity which has been richly gilded.The bowl is fig-shaped and the terminal is in the form of a crown with a dark blue enamel orb inside. The bowl and stem have decorated with blue enamel with raised scrolls of silver (cloisonne work) and the bowl is edged with white enamel beads and has two beautiful white enamel flowers to the centre. It has Imperial Russian hallmarks with the city stamp of Moscow and the number 84 denoting silver of 87.5% purity. There is a Cyrillic makers mark but, unfortunately, I havent been able to identify it.
From the style of the markings, I would estimate this to date to the last quarter of the 19. This spoon is in beautiful condition with no dents, wear or kinks to the silver and the gilding is nice and rich with no wear. The enamel is also in very good condition with no chips.
However, there are some fine fractures to a few of the white beads at the back of the bowl although these are stable. Please see the photos below.
