BID ON THE-SALEROOM
An early twentieth century Russian silver and cloisonnÚ enamel beaker or shot cup, the small, slightly tapering form decorated with foliate motifs in shades of blue, green and red. Struck with second Kokoshnik mark for Moscow (1908 - 1926), alongside further assay marks. Height measures 1 1/2 inches (4 cm).
The cup displays some general wear, surface scratches and marks commensurate with the age and use. The silver appears very tarnished and would benefit from a clean and polish. Some small areas of damage to enamel and also some fading to colours. Rim is slightly misshapen. Marks are clear and legible.
