A nice old Vintage Serviette Ring from the S.S. BENDIGO. The Bendigo was launched in 1922 for P & O lines at Greenock. She was 13089 gross tons and was used on the UK - Australia emigrant services run and also did runs on the Australia Mail Service. Scrapped in 1936....very short time of just 14 years in service so items off this vessel will be fairly rare. The Napkin Ring Is EPNS and enamel....at minimum it is 70 plus years old. Some enamel loss as per pictures.
