Elegant PAIR of antique to vintage French sterling silver 2" napkin rings, each 95% pure silver with ornate machined or engraved guilloche style decoration and interlaced His & Her "LM" and "GM" monograms! Both stamped with the French Minerve or Minerva hallmark, it's somewhat obscured by the pattern but either a "1" or "2" within that mark which means they're either 1st quality for .950 silver content or 2nd for .800 or better silver content. The silversmith mark is most likely for Albert Deflon, Paris circa 1907-1920.
