This gilded silver antique Russian kovsh was made in Moscow between 1899 and 1908 by the most renowned enameler of the period – Feodor Ruckert (1851-1918). Ruckert produced cloisonne enamel objects for such celebrated firms as Faberge and Ovchinnikov.

Kovsh, an ancient Russian drinking vessel, was revived in the late 19th century as a purely decorative art object.

This kovsh is made of gilded silver and embellished with very fine cloisonne enamel floral designs in medieval Russian tradition. It is accented by two cabochon cut green chrysoprases and two carnelians.

The kovsh is marked under the base with 88 zolotnik silver standard (916 silver), Moscow assay mark with initials of assay master Ivan Lebedkin, and maker’s initials ‘Ф.Р.’ for Feodor Ruckert.

Weight 119 grams.
