Fabulous antique French Belle Epoque era .950 sterling silver 2" napkin ring, 95% pure silver with elegant Empire style foliate spray accenting and interlaced “FB" or "TB" monogram! Stamped with the French Mercure or Mercury hallmark though it is quite obscured, meaning it was meant for export from France. The silversmith mark is mostly illegible and I've not been able to find reference for it.
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 bulky 44 grams or 1.4 troy ounces and is in fine condition as you can see from the images. Some surface scuffing and faint discolorations but those are really more visible in the images than to the naked eye. See pictures for measurements.
