Here are some pieces I've collected for the pase few years.  Again affortable and easy to fine.

In thw 1910-20 when Mission furnniture was popular some the the arts and crafts makers such as Gustav Stickley and lambert furniture, Importad Russian brass for tule and other makers.

Here is the type of marks usual found on such pieces..so starl flipping over that nice hand made brass pieces you find at the fleamarket. You may find a real treasure.

Thanks George! The photos are very impressive. I'm not a collector myself, BUT I would love to have a tea caddy like that.

Hello,

I've just joined the forum and was interested in the marking in the first photo you posted.  Is that a coat of arms?
Was it etched / stamped into all brass routinely, or does it signify who the owner was? Just curious...

Thanks for your help --

It was the arms of the Russian Empire at the time. It just says "Made in Moscow".  Almost all the brass pieces of the era had a similar mark, it really was just a means of showing it was of Russian origin, period.  It really means nothing more than that, though unscrupulous or ignorant sellers at online auctions make it out to be something important.
