    I found this set of 6 silver plated metal holders with embossed floral designs and handles with glass inserts in a box next to a trash can. The metal holders measure 2 3/4" in diameter at the top x 3 1/8" at the base. From the back of the handle to the front of the holder is 4 1/8" across. The height of the holder is 2 5/8" (3 3/4" including handle).

    The glass inserts are about 5 1/2" high. I don't know if they are original to the set but they seem to fit very well. The glass isn't marked but the metal holders are. It looks like M?8MET1COPT. I included a photo of the mark and it was as clear as I could get it with my camera.

    I only photographed one of the pieces and haven't polished them yet. I don't know if they were used for hot or cold drinks, nor the type. The closest thing that I could find on line was a podstakannik (Russian), or tea glass holder, though most of those designs are higher in the front of the holder opposite of the handle. I am hoping someone can help me identify the mark as well as how old they may be and the country of origin. As always I thank everyone in advance for their help and knowledge.

      Greetings and thank you so much. I happen to have a Russian keyboard with characters on my computer and it is indeed Cyryllic. Unfortunately the characters wouldn't type on this page so I am still left with my English Characters to get as close as possible. Any idea a time period for this? And is Melkior a style, an area of Russia? Thank you again for your help. What a great start.
