Antique Russian hallmarked "84" (nearly sterling) silver 1 5/8" napkin ring with ornate machined or engraved floral decoration, circular medallion with cyrillic "AD" monogram and silversmith markings! I've not been able to find a reference to the maker since it is rather illegible. There's the Russian marking in oval the the kokoshnik (left facing woman's head in profile), "84" for the .875 silver content (87.5% pure so just under the .925 standard for "sterling" silver). A lovely little ring, enjoy!
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, built to last, great condition as you can see from the images with just some surface marks/nicks or scuffs. See pictures for measurements.
