Fabulous antique French sterling silver 2” napkin ring with frieze style foliate bands, raised bow-top medallion with interlaced “GR” monogram and vermeil interior! An elegant piece and relatively heavy at 38 grams. This one marked with the post-1878 French Minerve or Minerva hallmark, the tiny number “1” within that mark means it’s in .950 silver (95% pure and higher than the .925 standard for “sterling” silver). There is the insect date mark but I don’t see a silversmith mark.
YES, a single here but one of several superb antique and vintage sterling silver napkin rings that we're adding today (and in the weeks ahead) so be sure to browse our current offerings to build a collection fit for royalty :). We’ve amassed over 100 great old mostly French sterling napkin rings over the years and I’m working on them now. They're great mixed & matched around your table, wonderful to find a set of twelve or more matching pieces but who could be so lucky. And, isn't it much neater if all are unique, each with a history...a story of its own! We have rococo style napkin rings, guilloche style machined or engraved napkin rings, French Empire style napkin rings, personalized napkin rings with the original owners’ names on them… Just a massive array of styles and aesthetically unbeatable! Browse and enjoy, they’re all so lovely and sure to add to your fine dining experience (and that of your guests, too)!
Very good to excellent condition. Possibly some light surface marks or scuffing but no dents, dings, damage or repairs. The vermeil interior is a bit faded with age. See pictures for all measurements.
