This stunning antique Art Nouveau napkin ring features the head of a woman whose long flowing hair is skillfully incorporated into the napkin ring design. It is also to be noted that the napkin ring is rectangular rather than round. One dimension is 1.75 inches and the other 1.5 inches. The napkin ring is 40% heavier than the average sterling ring, weighing in at 1.4 ounces on a postal scale. On the inside of the napkin ring is the word "Sterling" and also the mark for the La Pierre Company, founded in 1888. The company's mark is a combination of the letters L and F, designed to resemble the pound sterling mark. This is a wonderful American sterling napkin ring-- truly Art Nouveau.
