Fine, heavy antique to vintage Dutch hallmarked sterling silver 2 1/8" napkin ring with bead festooned bands, "AF" monogram on one side and "7 Sept '18" engraved on the other! Okay, this would be vintage if we went by the strict '100 year old' definition of antique but in about nine months and six days :), it will be antique. Nothing overly frilly, just classical bead festoon or gadrooning and it's overly heavy as far as napkin rings go. The tiny sword hallmark indicates it's of Dutch origins. There is also an "SW" marking, likely for the silversmith but I've not been able to find definitive reference. Elegant and heavy as can be!
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. Our images are large and clear so you really can see any and all small spots of tarnish, a tiny nick or two but nothing I would actually call damage given its age. See pictures for weight and measurements.
