    My friend inherited this. It is beautiful. Enamel old cut diamonds. She has no idea of what it is. I am hoping someone has the knowledge and can help? Thanks 20190615_095225.jpg 20190620_103055.jpg

    Hallmarks a bit hard to read. Are there any others on the piece?
    Russian gold assay marks are usually a cartouche with a head facing left - 1896- 1908 and facing right 1908 - 1926. Before the head there is a small symbol for the region/ city and lastly a number for gold assay being “56” for 14kt and “72” for 18kt.
    The number 4 could be for the weight in zolotniks which 1 zolotnik equals 4.26 grams.
    The B one would assume is a maker mark but the list of Russian goldsmiths doesn’t include just a “B”, however English hallmarks do use letters as a date mark.
    The other stamp could be the makers mark but it’s not easy to read.

    Thanks so much for that. They are the only marks i could find.
    It is beautiful. Could it be Austrian rather than Russian?

    Her Grandmother was Austrian. It was given to her before the war and he said it was Russian. I am trying to help her get the best price for it.
