Here we have a delightful, sterling silver napkin ring, which is rather unusual. It has double rings to hold the napkin, and a wishbone, at the top, on a Spring, for decoration, and I suppose, good luck. This napkin ring is hallmarked, and the marks declare that it is British Sterling, minted in Birmingham, in the year 1901. I have two of these napkin rings, but AM SELLING THEM SEPARATELY, even though they are pictured together, because I thought some collectors of napkin rings might just want one. Napkin rings were essential in Victorian times, because there were no paper napkins, and of course, cloth napkins, used three times a day, could not be washed after every use, so everyone had their own napkin ring.
