Gorgeous antique French sterling silver 2" napkin ring PAIR with rococo style pattern in moderate bas relief, raised or applied medallions sans monograms, both thick & heavy at 43 & 45 grams and in fabulous condition! Both bear the French Minerve or Minerva hallmark, the tiny number "1" within those marks means they are in .950 silver (95% pure so higher than the .925 standard for "sterling" silver). The silversmith mark is visible and is for A. Boulanger, Paris circa 1876-1899. One of several superb antique French sterling silver napkin rings that we’re adding today, among a host of other fabulous treasures so, be sure to browse some while you’re with us. Thanks!

Excellent condition. Slight variation, one weighs 43 and the other 45 grams, built to last, great condition as you can see from the images. Faint surface scuffing and darkened tarnish visible in the deep recessed areas but no dents, damage or repairs to note. See pictures for measurements.
