[26-1123]

I am trying to learn about the marks on a piece of jewelry I recently acquired. It has carnelian stones and possibly Russian marks (?). I'm not familiar with "914" can anyone give me any ideas?

Thanks,
alludep

Welcome to the forum. The picture of the bracelet did not come through, but the marks are the those of the Soviet Union, post 1958 (hammer and sicle inside a five-pointed star). 916 is the silver content (91.6%) and the "C" is a district mark, but I don't have a source that lists which one. The other mark is probably the maker.

All the best,
Tom

This are the marks of UDSSR (CCCP) since May 7th 1958.The C stands for Swerdlowsk (town). The other mark is the manufakturer:
Swerdlowskaja Juwelirno-Graniliaja Fabrika ( something like: granulated (the technic of your brooch )jewels faktory from Swerdlowsk), in existence 1953-1967. The 8 stands for the last number of the year of manufakture = 1958

Hi,

I have also a Sovjet time jewlery with following marks:
- same five star
- purity 875
- district P
- maker 3KD.

So I was interested to know the district, maker information and the year of manufacture.

Regards,
Juhana

Without fotos there is always the possibility of misinterpretation on both sides!

875 is the silvercontent (875/1000)

916 is the silvercontent (916/1000)

What you describe as number 3 is the district letter for Tallinn (Estonia) under Russian rule.

9KKK is the code of the factory in Tallinn, working in the year 1969 (the name of the factory as always some for us unknown hero of the labour).

1KK is the code of the factory in Tallinn, working in the year 1971 (the name of the factory as always some for us unknown hero of the labour).

Thank you very much Sazikov 2000!

My camera is not very good, so I can not take pictures of hallmarks

Dear Mr. Sazikov,
I have read your so interesting and enlightening post about the Kovshi written at 11-12-2005. I am very interested at this type of objects because I am very interested at Russian and Baltic bird-shaped and boat-shaped objects, and at the drinking Rituals where this type of objects were utilised. But I am mainly interested at objects dated from the 1th century to the 15th century, approximately, and, after a long time of research, I have not been able to find any bibliographic references about this type of objects, their historical development, their use, their symbolism or their formal characteristics in these centuries. The references which I have found are about later Kovshi, and I am very disorientated... Please would you be so kind to say to me if you know any bibliographic reference about this type of Russian and Baltic drinking vessels in these centuries, approximately?. Your post about Kovshi has been very enlightening for me, I am sure that any word from you would be very interesting for me, included a negative answer. Please would you be so kind to contact to me?. Thank you, thank you very much.
With all my gratitude,
MarķaFernaud
