Fabulous & rare antique French sterling silver 2" napkin ring pair, heavy at 40 grams each and with delightful "Madame" & "Monsieur" engravings! Quite unique and perfect for those intimate evenings at home spoiling each other! Each bears the French Minerve or Minerva hallmark, the tiny number "1" within those marks means it's in .950 silver under the gold plate (95% pure so higher than the .925 standard for "sterling" silver). The silversmith marks are for Louis Ravinet & Charles D'Enfert, Paris circa 1891-1912. Charming to say the least, don't miss them!
