These napkin rings are held in a small sturdy cardboard box covered with navy blue paper. Inside there are six lined partitions for six narrow sterling silver napkin rings. They are labelled 1 – 6 so that the appropriate person would be sure to get their napkin back at meal times! The rings are hallmarked for ‘FW’ and Birmingham, 1912 and are otherwise plain. The condition is very good for age although numbers 1 and 3 have a couple of tiny indentations (possibly from a careless child or parent!). Although rarely used today, these could be delightful to use for an upmarket dinner party or to add to a collection of earlier silver pieces. Box measures 3.1 ins (8cm) x 1.75 ins (4.5cm) x 2 ins (5cm). Weight 50 grams. This item can be seen in my book, “Antique Boxes, Inside and Out” on page 90.
