    antique 1900's russian guilloche enamel '91' silver & 14ct gold fruit knife fob st petersburg - gold purity 56/96 zlotniks

    A fine antique Russian miniature fruit knife fob.
    Red guilloche enamel with a sterling silver blade and a Russian gold purity mark of '56' on the bale. This stands for 56/96 Zlotniks - equates to 585/100 gold purity.

    The silver mark is an oval cartouche with a head and the number '91', and a small Greek alpha letter denoting St Petersburg.A makers mark is also present but difficult to decipher. These marks date the silver piece to no earlier than 1908.
    Confition: Overall the guilloche has two areas of wear, one near the bale and another area on the edge, the latter being more a matter of loss of layers of enamel. Please see pictures
    The tip of the knife is very slightly uneven, hence does not sit fully inside. This should be easily straightened.
    Length is 6.9cm to include bale
    Weight is 22.5g
