The owner of this Russian wine kovsh received it from his mother, who got it as a gift from a friend; and what a gift it is! Aside from being beautifully detailed and in great condition, this piece dates back to the mid 19th century, and was made by Pavel Akimovich Ovchinnikov. Ovchinnikov was one of Faberge’s competitors, and his name on this piece is a big deal. No spoilers, but you’ll want to see the owner’s reaction when he hears how much this kovsh is worth.
