Imperial Russian 84 Silver Charka or Vodka Cup with gilt interior in very good used condition. 1890s

The word "charka" means vodka cup, and is a diminutive of the Russian word "chara" (a glass or a cup). Similarly, the diminutive of a "charka" is known as "charotchka".
As well as a liquor cup, a charka is also an old vodka measure of 143,5ml, first appearing in the XVIth century. As a result of the XIXth century decree, the measure was reduced to 1/100 vedro, which corresponds to 123ml.

Hallmarks: 84 (875/1000 silver), Moscow, 1890-1898.

Maker's mark is partially legible only (struck askew) and the name would be speculation?
So, ... better said, unknown.
