Starting with a splendid cartouche which contains an elegant script monogram this antique sterling napkin ring is one of the best by its maker Gorham of Providence, Rhode Island. The ring is both large and heavy. The borders are shaped with repousse scrolls. Fleurettes accent the scrolls. The design around the cartouche repeats the scroll design vertically. At the bottom of the cartouche is a shell design and at the top a crown motif. On the inside of the ring are the three standard marks for Gorham (lion, anchor, G), "sterling", and a pattern number. The diameter of the ring is 2 inches and the width is also 2 inches. The weight is 57.5 grams (2.03 ounces). This is an outstanding sterling napkin ring in beautiful condition.
