Antique French Sterling Silver Napkin Ring, Allegories of Love & Music, 58.4g

A stunning antique French sterling silver napkin ring. The neoclassical decoration is exquisite! Surrounded by Louis XVI ribbon & reed borders with trailing flowers here and there. Centered by a gorgeous medallion cartouche, framed by flowers rocailles, scrolling foliate, all atop a stylized beaded acanthus leaf and crowned by a French ribbon knot bow. To the reverse are a pair of classical vignettes, each flanked by foliate and suspended from a ribbon bow with tassel detail. One allegorizing music, featuring bagpipes and a tambourine, while the other allegorizes love, featuring attributes of Cupid (a quiver full of arrows and a flaming torch). Free of any monogram so it's perfect to have personalized with your own engraved initials or emblem. Hallmarked with the French Minerve 1st standard hallmark, which depicts the head of the goddess Minerva with a number 1 beside her to denote a silver content of .950/1000 silver (95% pure silver and a higher grade of finesse than .925 sterling!) Bearing a silversmith's mark for Gabert & Conreau, active from 1901-1906, whose workshop was located at 24 rue Beaubourg in Paris. In overall good antique condition. Measures 1 5/8" tall x 2" diameter Weighs 58.4g
