Elegant antique French Puiforcat hallmarked sterling silver 2" napkin ring with guilloche style engraved or machined decoration banner with interlaced "GH" or "HG" monogram! This one bears the French Minerve or Minerva hallmark, the tiny number "1" within the mark designates 95% pure silver content so higher than the .925 standard for sterling silver. The silversmith mark for the world renowned Maison Puifocat, maker to royalty and now owned by Hermes of Paris, another name we all associate with only the finest of finery.
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 condition. This one weighs 29 grams and is in fine condition as you can see from the images. Some slight surface scuffing and a bit of tarnish or darkening visible. See pictures for measurements.
