Yes, a single here and 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 :). These are 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!
Very good condition. Weighs a heavy 56 grams, built to last (as it has for its 100 or so years), great condition as you can see from the images. Light surface scuffing, a bit of visible tarnish, but it's in wonderful shape. Some dents to the rim edges. See pictures for measurements.
