Fabulous and unique antique French hallmarked .800 (nearly sterling) solid silver napkin ring PAIR, each with ornate actual silver wire mesh and raised medallion sans monogram! Aren't these great! A bend or two here and there but, if you look closely, that's actual silver wire mesh with a stamped or pressed pattern in it. Each bears the tiny French boar's head hallmark, designating at least .800 silver content (80% pure silver). There are also tiny, possibly silversmith, marks near the tops of the applied medallions but I can't quite make them out.
YES, a PAIR here, hard to find. This listing is 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 condition, age etc. considered. Each weighs 32 grams so that's 2.1 troy ounces or 64 grams total. Both are in fine condition as you can see from the images with just a few 'bend' or imperfections. Slightly out of perfect round. See pictures for measurements.
