Victorian silver figural napkin rings, circa 1880 -1900, are beautiful and fun to collect. These silver plated works of art are whimsical as well as practical. During the Victorian era, they were a show of status, as well as being functional. Each member of the family, or guest, would have their own figural napkin ring, usually representing their passions or hobbies.

This wonderful figural napkin ring has the figure of an Eagle or other large bird of pray perched on each side as if to be holding the ring in place. The ring is engraved with an esoteric motif of floral and geometric designs and within a cartouche is etched the initials "A N". The base is stamped "Roger Smith & Co. - Meriden CT - Quadruple - 146 - U.S.A." The company produced hollow-ware and flat-ware silver-plated items using designs furnished by others which the plated, finished and stamped with their trademark from 1857-1904. The ring measures 2" in height, 3 1/8" in length and 1 1/2" in width, with no damaged or missing components and wonderful original darkened patina. Lovely figural napkin ring.
