Recently acquired this spoon to add to my Lily of the Valley collection and believe the marks might be Russian. First mark appears to be a rangy lion passant, the last looks like it might be someone hammering at an anvil. Would appreciate any help in identification.

The first mark (lion) is the Estonian(Baltic)
hallmark for the years 1922 - 1940, when Estonia was an independent state, the second mark is the silvercontent (875/1000),the third mark is the manufakturer.
