A Polish 84 standard silver egg, maker's mark not seen, Assay Master Josef Sonskowski, Warsaw.
Applied with boar's heads with hunting horns and semi-precious stones, having an open-work finial, on three scroll feet, opening to reveal the cast figure of a bison.
Russian occupied Warsaw and parts of Poland for much of the 19th century and an Imperial Russian Assay Office was operating from 1852-1899. This looks to be quite nicely made and I would like to feel from what I can see in the images that this piece is alright, but I should warn you that a number of fakes are reported bearing the Sonskowski Assay marks just like this and some people are now suspicious of all of these.
