Wonderful antique French sterling silver 1 7/8" napkin ring, 95% pure silver with ornate guilloche style machined pattern including scrolling vines, flowers & foliage encircling a cadrooned band and engraved "CA" or "AC" monogram in a unique banner shaped medallion! Marked with the French Minerve or Minerva hallmark, 1st quality for .950 silver content (95% pure and higher than the .925 standard for "sterling" silver). The silversmith mark is for Louis Coignet, Paris circa 1889-1893.
Yes, a single here and 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 :). These are 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!
Very good condition. Weighs 38 grams, built to last (as it has for its 100 or so years), great condition as you can see from the images. Some surface scuffing, a bit of visible tarnish on the ring edges, but it's in wonderful shape. See pictures for measurements.
