This stunning sterling napkin ring was made in Glasgow, Scotland, in 1884. One rarely sees napkin rings from Glasgow. The silversmith's symbol for the city of Glasgow is based on the legend of St. Mungo. Included in the symbol are an oak tree, a bird, a fish with ring, and a bell. There is a full set of hallmarks which gives us the city, year, and the maker, W. Alexander and Son. This Scottish napkin ring itself is exceptionally fine-- featuring applied flowers on a gilt background. The flowers are quite 3-dimensional and extend well above the surface. The diameter opening is 1.75 inches and the width is 1 inch. The work by this silversmith is remarkably fine. The ring is in outstanding condition and weighs 33.3 g. or 1.2 ounces.
