Gorgeous antique French sterling silver 2" napkin ring, 95% pure silver with elegant Art Nouveau style pattern, "Christiane" inscription or dedication and fabulous condition! This one bears the French Minerve or Minerva hallmark, 1st quality for .950 silver content (the tiny number "1" within the mark designating 95% pure silver and higher than the .925 standard for "sterling" silver). The silversmith mark is most likely for Gabriel Marche, Paris circa 1916.
We’ve amassed well 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 to excellent condition. This one weighs 35 grams, built to last, great condition as you can see from the images. Some slight surface scuffing possible and it's recently been polished to a high shine. See pictures for measurements.
