I want to thank all of you in advance for your help and guidance in providing me with all the knowledge you can muster on this spoon! I am not an expert and I value your input!

So.. based on the "makers mark" this is what I came up with through some online research:

* the 84 followed by a left-facing Kokoshink - this spoon was most likely made between 1896-1908
* the following two initials appear to be? for the maker Ivan Lebedkin? who apparently worked in Moscow during the above mentioned time period?

* Is any of this correct?
* What else can you tell me about this treasure?
* Is this spoon part of a larger set? (most likely) and if so, What does the rest of the set look like and where is it now?

thank you!
I am waiting anxiously to see your replies and what other information you can provide me with smile

Your research seems to be spot on! I love the beautiful Russian silver enameled wares. Yes it was most likely part of a set of spoons in a presentation set- depending on the size, would determine how large the set would have been. I have seen sets where it is two spoons and two large serving pieces in a presentation case (usually ceremonial). Is this a family piece ? How did you come about it?
