Elegant antique French .800 (nearly sterling) silver 2" napkin ring, 80% pure silver with ornate classical or rococo style decoration including raised or applied medallion with interlaced “TM" monogram! Stamped with the French Minerve or Minerva hallmark, the tiny number "2" within that mark means it's "2nd quality" for .800 or better silver content (at least 80% pure so just under the .925 standard for "sterling" silver). I've been unable to find the tiny silversmith mark on this one so can't narrow down the maker or dates of manufacture. A lovely piece, don't miss it! We also have an identical ring but with a monogram available if you're looking for a pair, it's item number 1017nap3. Take a look. Thanks!
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 20 grams and is in fine condition as you can see from the images. Some slight surface scuffing possible and a tiny dimple or two possible. See pictures for measurements.
