Description and Details
We are delighted to offer this magnificent pair of Imperial Russian solid silver niello spoons with the marks of Volkov Karp Nikit (Волков Карп Никит), Moscow 1908-1912.This pair is made in a particularly good gauge of silver; the pair of spoons have a large size and hefty quality weight upon holding in hand. In spite of its impressive and bold size, the minute detailing and intricacy of the engraving, design and niello-work is equally, if not more marvellous.
The spoons feature a finely hand-engraved foliate relief design with scrollwork that is contrasted with black niello and a finely stippled background.
The proportions of the handle, tapering and terminals are also delightfully elegant yet precise with further niello-work on the handles. Owing to its large and accommodating size, this pair would make for an excellent statement piece as an Imperial period Russian niello spoon and equally practical and versatile in serving fruit, berries, desserts etc. Clear Russian hallmarks are present on the side of the stem of the spoon with the maker's mark, 84 mark and the Moscow delta symbol.
