Collectors agree that this napkin ring is one of the most desirable antique sterling napkin rings. It is a wonderful napkin ring by Tiffany in the exclusive "Chrysanthemum" pattern. The ring has wide applied chrysanthemum borders on each side, including lush blooms and foliage. There is an elegant three letter monogram. Flatware in the "Chrysanthemum" pattern was patented September 21, 1880, and was the heaviest and most luxurious flatware pattern created by Tiffany. The designer was Charles T. Grosjean, considered to be one of the finest silver designers of the late 19th century. This napkin ring was made in the period 1902-1907, when Charles C. Cook was director of Tiffany & Co. The "C" on the napkin ring allows us to date the piece. The napkin ring has a diameter opening of 1 3/4 inches and a width of 1 5/8 inches. It is very heavy at 60.5 grams. Inside the ring is a full set of marks, shown in one of the pictures. The marks read "Tiffany & Co. Makers Sterling C." The ring is in fine condition with a few pinpoint dings.. This is a very difficult napkin ring to find.
