Fabulous & HEAVY antique French sterling silver 2â napkin ring with ornate Louis XV or rococo style including foliate tendril accents and rocaille framed medallion with "OC" monogram! The French Minerve or Minerva hallmark, the tiny number "1" within that mark means it's 1st quality for .950 silver content (at least 95% pure silver and higher than the .925 standard for "sterling" silver). The silversmith mark on this one is for Henri Soufflot, Paris circa 1884-1910.

Very good condition. This one weighs an overly heavy 49 grams, built to last, great condition as you can see from the images. Some light surface scuffing and a bit of tarnish in the recesses. See pictures for measurements.
