More information

Shanks & Bolin, Magasin Anglais was established in Moscow in 1852 and consisted of James Stuart Shanks and Henrik Conrad Bolin. The partnership continued until the death of Henrik Conrad in 1888.

Many of Bolin’s exclusive silver objects made in Moscow bear, in addition to the company mark, the initials ML. ML stands for Marie Linke who was one of the main workmasters that Bolin cooperated with. According to Tatjana Muntjans research in 'W.A. Bolin, Bolin in Russia', 2001, Maria Linke was registered as the owner of a workshop in 1866-1894. She was married to the Prussian Edward Linke and had a son Konstantin who followed in his mother’s footsteps and later also became a workmaster at Bolin with the makers mark “KL”.
