Lovely antique French hallmarked sterling silver napkin ring with flowing Art Nouveau style foliate decoration, sinuous vines or tendrils and "Etienne R" inscription! This one bears the French Minerve or Minerva hallmark, the tiny number "1" within that mark means it's in .950 silver (95% pure so above the .925 standard for "sterling" silver). I don't see a silversmith mark but it's surely from Paris circa 1880-1910.
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 40 grams and is in fine condition as you can see from the images. Some slight surface nicks and scuffing possible. Very slightly out of perfect round. See pictures for measurements.
