    Kremlin Perfume Flask in silver, 1968.

    Kremlin Perfume Flask in silver, 1968.

    Measures 53.1 mm tall incl. the stopper, 25.9 mm in width in its widest section; weighs 13.8 grams. The front features embossed image of the main tower of the Moscow Kremlin. There is an "875" silver hallmark on the reverse at the neck and a matching hallmark on the stopper. Near the bottom there is a maker mark ХЮ8 ("KhYu-8") of the Kharkov Jewelry Factory which dates the flaks to exact year of 1968 /according to the "Catalog of Hallmarks on Items in Precious Metals, 1917-2000 (USSR and Russia)". N. Troepolskaya. C. 2006/.

    In excellent condition. There are no dents or significant scratches, only very light wear; the artwork is nicely defined. The threads of the stopper function smoothly. There is dark tarnish to the silver which adds character (it can be easily removed with silver polish, but we wouldn't recommend doing it!)

    A very interesting "status symbol" item, this flask was apparently made in commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the Revolution. An almost unobtainable luxury for most Soviet women, it would demonstrate a special elite status of its original owner.

    Item# 30029
