silver salt cellar in Pan-Slavic style

Russian pan-slavic antique silver salt cellar unfortunately this isn't a silver salt cellar made in Russia in 1879 in Pan-Slavic style but a piece of modern manufacture with fake Imperial Russia marks.
It has tapering cylindrical form standing on three bracket type feet, the upper perimeter is chased with a diaper frieze.
To the base it bears fake maker's mark A.M. and a mark incorporating the date 1879 and the purity stamp 84 (84 zolotnick corresponds to 875/1000). Additionaly it is struck again with the purity mark 84 to the exterior base of one the the feet.
The salt cellar is 2 in. wide (cm. 5).
Beware!! Today most of the Russian silver and Judaica silver are new or fake
