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 a heavy 42 grams, built to last (as it has for its 100 plus years), great condition as you can see from the images. There is one tiny visible split on the back bottom (where the sterling band is joined into the ring shape via silver solder. Some surface scuffing but it's in wonderful shape. See pictures for measurements.
