hi,
pls forgive my english (I’m Italian!)
I’ve tried to interpretate the hallmark:
the letters in the oval are the silversmith’s initial in cyrillic (in latin VL ?), then we have the letters of the assayer (?) and the date (1891), 84 is the silver fineness in zolotniks (84 was the common one and correspond to 875/1000), at last we have the town mark.
All that to be able to read the hallmark, however I didn’t find a correspondence.
You could find yourself more information visiting the site www.silvercollection.it/bis4russiansilverhallmarks.html
Did I help you?
