I have a "Russian style" set of tea cups. I really not sure if they are "Russian" or not but it is a silver cup with a glass insert. On the handle are three silver marks or (stamps). One is a running ostrich and the other two are letters. Any clue on the identity?

Thank You,
Lori Todd

The running ostrich makes me think of WMF, a German manufacturer working mainly in silverplate from the late 19th century and still going strong. Have a look at this earlier posting to see if any of your marks match: marks used by WMF on metalware
