Hallmark
1. The hallmark includes St. George mounted on a horse killing the dragon. The dragon lies on its back and raises its tail which passed between the horse's hind legs and past the horse's tail. The contours of the hallmark frame follow the shapes of the figures. The hallmark is unidentified but its type is similar to
hallmarks that indicate Moscow in the 19th century. Cf. Tardy, p. 532-533.

2. The hallmark includes in its center a rectangle divided into nine squares. The rectangle is surmounted by the cipher 13 and is surrounded by the date 1(8?)1(?). It is framed by a rectangle surmounted by an arch. The hallmark is unidentified but it is similar in type to Austro-Hungarian hallmarks. In these hallmarks, the cipher 13 indicates quality and the ciphers around the central motif refer to the date. Cf. Tardy. p. 328.

3. The hallmark includes the initials: F A A, combined together within a frame in a shape of a shield. It is unidentified but probably refers to the artist.

Summary and Remarks

The hallmarks present several problems:

1. They are similar to popular hallmarks but are not given to an exact identification when compared
with hallmarks in the bibliography.
2. Each hallmark represents a different authority, one is  Russian and the other is Austro-Hungarian, something that is rarely found together.

3. There is no correlation between the earliest date that the hallmarks indicate (if they are authentic) and the style of the decoration of the plate which is typical of the beginning of the 20th century.
