Large antique Russian silver “honey” jar. Hallmarked Moscow 1886 marked under and on pull off lid. Trompe l’oeil silver to imiatate the bark of birch tree jars used for hundreds of years in the country for the same purpose. Russian silversmiths perfected this astonishing look by chasing silver articles to a degree that one “can” believe that it is made of birch bark rather than silver.
