Here is a beautiful pair of English sterling napkin rings made in 1878. There is a full set of hallmarks so we know the exact year. They were made in the city of Sheffield. The maker was the firm of Richard Martin and Ebenezer Hall. The pair weighs 2.3 ounces on a postal scale. The style of these rings is sometimes called bright cut because of the way the sterling was worked. Each napkin ring has an opening of 2 inches and a width of 1.5 inches. The cartouches have never been used. These napkin rings are exquisite but difficult to photograph because of the light reflections. They are 137 years old and in outstanding condition.
