This Victorian silver plated figural napkin ring was made by the E. G. Webster & Bro. of New York. Napkin rings were a necessary dining feature in the Victorian times. The owner would identify his or her napkin by the unique holder they used. This would allow the person to re-use their cloth napkin multiple times and denoted their place at the table. This napkin holder has the original owner’s name, Walter, engraved in the top of the ring. It rests on a large leaf and is embellished with strawberries. The silver is in excellent condition. 2"h X 3"w X 3.5"d, Condition: Excellent, Circa: 1880's.
