French Silver Engraved Napkin Ring - Minerva's Head

This delicate French silver napkin ring tests to at least 800 purity silver and bears a hallmark. It dates to the early 20th century circa 1910-1920.

The napkin ring measures 1 and 13/16" (4.6cms) across the interior space and is 15/16" (2.3cms) tall. It weighs 11.2 grams.

It has a pretty `waisted' design with light decorative engraving of flowers and scallops with occasional cartouches with a crossed motif. In the centre is a plaque left blank for an engraving. Around each edge is a band of heavier , diagonal link engraving. In one of the cartouches is the French Minerva's head hallmark for silver. This usually indicates the grade of silver with a 1 or a 2 beside it but the hallmark is too small to identify here.

This lovely piece is in fine vintage condition and would make a lovely small gift for a christening or other celebration. It will arrive in a gift box
