Elegant antique French sterling silver 2" napkin ring Classical style laurel bands top and bottom, Interlaced “YL” Monogram and HEAVY at 62 grams! This one bears the French Minerve or Minerva hallmark, the tiny number "1" within that mark designating it as being in .950 silver content (95% pure so above the .925 standard for "sterling" silver). The silversmith mark is for Eugene Lefebvre, Paris circa 1896-1910.
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 aesthetically unbeatable! Browse and enjoy, they’re all so lovely and sure to add to your fine dining experience (and that of your guests, too)!
Very good condition. This one weighs a massive 62 grams and is in fine condition as you can see from the images. Some slight surface scuffing but recently polished to a high shine. See pictures for measurements.
