An antique Imperial era (pre-1908) Russian silver appetizer or dessert fork with a little history. One prong of the fork was coated with copper to test for presence of poison. Some of the copper has worn off. The monogram includes a 4 point crown, which I believe corresponds to one of the ranks of Count.
If you have Russian relatives, or simply like Russian 875 silver, this is a good one.
