A widespread Fraget mark for marking the hollow ware made by galvanic silver deposition. It consists of the inscription "FRAGET PLAQUE" ("FRAGET PLATE") inside the oval.The letter "N" in the centre of the oval means "silver deposition onto the brass surface". The size of the oval varies between 5.2 mm x 7.9 mm and 7.3 mm x 10.5 mm. Above the oval is the coat of arms of Russian Empire - the two-headed eagle.

One old repair - don't downgrade appearance or functionality - please see last picture. SUPER NICE AND RARE EXAMPLE OF ANTIQUE JUDAICA - PICTURES DON'T DO JUSTICE - ABSOLUTELY STUNNING!
