Several of the penny toys that were made in Germany were given out by the Universal Theatres Concession Co. They are usually marked on the side. I have had alligators and bugs with these markings. This piece was apparently given to the mothers at the theatre!!. This is an embossed tin napkin ring. It is 1" x 3/4" wide x 1-1/2" deep - more of an oval. It has grapevine, leaves and grapes for a design. The words "A Souvenir - From The - Universal - Theatres - Concession Co. - Chicago, Ill." are also on this piece. "Germany" is also underneath the grapevines.
This napkin ring has a nice age related patina. The raised parts are a bit shinier than the rest of the ring.
