Fabulous antique French sterling silver 2" napkin ring, 95% pure silver with unique and ornate scrolling foliate tendrils & flowers raised against a subtle textured base, engraved accenting and interlaced no monogram in the shaped medallion! This one bears the tiny French Minerve or Minerva hallmark designating it as being in .950 or better silver content (at least 95% pure and higher than the .925 standard for "sterling" silver). The silversmith mark is nearly illegible but appears to be for Claude Doutre Roussel, Paris circa 1895..
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 a heavy 54 grams and is in fine condition as you can see from the images. Some slight surface scuffing possible. There is also a thin line visible in the medallion (where the monogram would be), it's the seam where the silver is joined and not damage though normally not as visible. See pictures for measurements.
