A fun Russian silver creamer with Moscow 19th century hallmark of St. George slaying the dragon. The maker's initials "I B 1811" is for the silversmith Iakov Vitaliyev (1802-55).

A Russian silver caviar serving scoop or spoon with a gold wash bowl and a coat-of-arms (armorial). Nice shape to the scoop and good detail throughout on the handle sections.

A very rare Russian silver fork with a 4 point crown armorial and fancy monogram which look like "ON" or "NO".
