Overly heavy antique French sterling silver 2" napkin ring with ornate guilloche style engraved or machined baroque scrolling foliate band decoration and interlaced “AR" monogram! This one bears the French Minerve or Minerva hallmark, the tiny number “1" within that mark means it's 1st quality for .950 or better silver content (at least 95% pure and higher than the .925 standard for "sterling" silver). There is no silversmith mark that I can see, possibly a commissioned piece? I’ve looked several times though, I guess, I could be missing it. Dates to the late 1800s.

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 an amazing 59 grams, about twice the average weight where these napkin rings are concerned. It’s in fine condition as you can see from the images. Some slight surface scuffing possible. See pictures for measurements.
