      Hello Ivan thanks very much for the information, I didn’t expect anyone would have a clue, so I am shocked but very happy to hear who made this spoon and will try to find out more about him.
      Great help

      This is all that can be found about the maker: Maksim Funtikov Evdokimovich.
      Worked in Krutitskiy Pereulok (Krutitskiy Lane), Moscow. He lived and had workshops in two houses in the lane (Labzov and Tumanov house) but both houses were demolished for modern buildings and tramway rails.
