Fantastic antique French sterling silver 2" napkin ring, 80% pure silver with gorgeous Classical or Empire style pattern, interlaced “MP" monogram and fabulous condition! The French Minerve or Minerva hallmark, 2nd quality for .800 silver content (80% pure, just under the .925 standard for sterling silver). Silversmith marks are for Cecile Gruyer, Paris circa 1908-1911. YES, a single here but one of several superb antique and vintage sterling silver napkin rings that we're adding today (and in the weeks ahead) so be sure to browse our current offerings to build a collection fit for royalty :). We’ve amassed over 100 great old mostly French sterling napkin rings over the years and I’m working on them now. They're great mixed & matched around your table, wonderful to find a set of twelve or more matching pieces but who could be so lucky. And, isn't it much neater if all are unique, each with a history...a story of its own! We have rococo style napkin rings, guilloche style machined or engraved napkin rings, French Empire style napkin rings, personalized napkin rings with the original owners’ names on them… Just a massive array of styles and esthetically unbeatable! Browse and enjoy, they’re all so lovely and sure to add to your fine dining experience (and that of your guests, too)!
Excellent condition. This one weighs 37 grams, built to last, great condition as you can see from the images. A tiny scuff possible and it has more of a satin rather than high gloss finish but it's in wonderful shape. See pictures for measurements.
