Although the manufacture of silver and gold works of art in Russia in some ways closely resembles western European styles, Russian production retains its own distinctions. In the second half of the nineteen and the beginning of the twentieth c e n t u r y (when the use of Kokoshnik marks began), gold and s i l v e r works characterized Russian art. The period has come to be known as the “ golden era” of Russian silver. Works imitated old Russian styles and ornaments were crafted traditionally, i. e. by using the technique of niello enamel. http: //etnografskimuzej. rs/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/Rusko-srebro. pdf? fbclid=IwAR2bv6zwU5hKkHhN7QRCv8D2S3wUiJg8FHKPbvR1w6W7w8J1njVymAraJoQ - article is in Serbian and English.
In 1896, Tsar Nicholas II (1868-1918) issued an edict that reformed this old system and the Kokosnik mark came into being as the new assayer's mark. As thousands of new diestamps had to be created, the kokoshnik did not come into full use usnitl early 1899.
Unitl 1908, the mark consisted of a left facing woman's head profile within an oval cartouche, she is wearing the peasant headdress traditionally reffered to as a kokoshnik. To her left is the standard number and to her right are the assayers intials, which also indicate the assay office. The delineation withing the oval is rendered in intaglio. This phase was named "The First Kokoshnik Mark".
