19th Century Coin Silver Napkin Ring - Unusual Shape
Here is a most unusual napkin ring. It is American coin silver with a very innovative shape. The sterling standard was slow to be adopted in the U.S. and many items were made from melted coins, hence the name coin silver. These items were virtually the same silver content as sterling, in fact sometimes a greater silver content as tests of older items have shown. The fact that it is coin silver dates it to the 1870's or perhaps even earlier and means that there are no hallmarks. It is decorated all the way around and has engraved on it the name Lou. The width of the ring is 1.75 inches. The diameter of the opening varies between 1.5 and 2 inches. It weighs 1.2 ounces. It is in fine condition.
