This is a new area of collecting for me.

Can anyone positively identify this maker?



Thanks!

I am no expert on Russian silver, but it looks to me as if it is meant to be Pavel Ovchinnikov with the Moscow mark for 1882-99. I put it this way because Ovchinnikov was a leading Court silversmith and is apparently much faked. You might find it interesting to do a search for him on the 925-1000 forum site where you can enjoy the spats between the experts (real or self-proclaimed) on Russian marks and see some photos of quite exceptional spoons from his workshop.
