A Victorian Era child's napkin ring fully hallmarked for English sterling silver. Napkin rings, cups, rattles and spoons were often given as christening gifts for children in the 19th Century. It is a thoughtful tradition to continue today. Antique sterling silver gifts become family heirlooms that can be passed down to other generations.
