Pair 1904 Sterling Napkin Rings - Harrison Family Crest & Motto

This pair of napkin rings is unlike any I have ever seen. Engraved on both rings is a family crest and the family motto (in Latin). The napkin rings are lovely and heavy and would be very desirable anyway; the crest and motto make them that much more special. Both have the standard English sterling hallmarks. They were made in Sheffield in 1904. The maker's mark is M&W, which is the mark of the famous firm of Mappin and Webb. The height of each is 1.75 inches, and the diameter of the opening is 2 inches, so these are quite large. The pair together weighs 4.2 ounces, very heavy for napkin rings. The crest is a crane with an arrow in its mouth. The motto is "Ferendo et Feriendo." By going to a heraldry web site I learned that this is the motto for the Harrison family, and the translation is "By bearing and striking." The napkin rings are in perfect condition and make a distinctive pair.
