Russian Silver Art Nouveau Sugar Bowl, c.1900
This rare Russian silver Art Nouveau sugar bowl It is hand made; hand chiseled and engraved. The bowl is stamped on the bottom with a Russian sterling proof mark; the number 84 and a women's head with a diadem, beside is a silversmith mark "CK". Below I have attached a copy from a book with the Russian hallmarks. The title of the book is "Gold and Silver Art XV-XX", published in Russia. The bowl is in good condition, no dents, cracks or repairs. It is rare to see many Russian Art Nouveau pieces since the Art Nouveau style was not very popular in Russia. The bowl is 8 inches wide and 3 ½ inches tall with the handle.
