Fine antique French sterling silver 2" napkin ring, pure silver with ornate guilloche style machined or engraved decoration and "Pierre" personalized inscription or dedication! Normally I can find the French Minerve or Minerva hallmark and silversmith marks on these, however tiny, but have had no luck on this one. No hallmarks that I can see, possibly just rubbed down over the years of polishing or perhaps it was a commissioned piece. Very similar to another that we have listed, also with a "Pierre" inscription and that one is hallmarked as .800 (80% pure) silver so we've priced this one accordingly.
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 22 grams and is in fine condition as you can see from the images. Some slight surface scuffing possible but no dents, damage or repairs to note. See pictures for measurements.
