This super napkin ring has the most wonderful pierced border pattern done with alternating placement on it's top and bottom. The rims are done with a bold scalloped curlicue and leaf pattern located on the top of the nice sized pierced hole with a more delicate floral motif at the hole's base. The bold curlicue has superb depth with both of the patterns having lovely dimension. The center portion of the ring is an un-patterned zig zag shape available for presentation but has never been engraved. The ring is in excellent condition and has great shape being within 1/16" of perfect roundness-it was used but not abused. You will find as can be expected some very faint surface scratching from use and old style cleaners. But there are no cracks, holes, rips, dents, deep scratches or repairs. When we acquired this ring it was extremely black from age. We left a lot of the black (patina) on the pattern areas to help show the pattern's depth. Upon request from a buyer we will clean it a little more before shipping. But we do not suggest cleaning out the black from the pattern indentations as you will lose that superb visible depth and dimension. The marks are on the interior and can be seen in the insert on photo #3. The ring is good and sturdy and has a weight of .95 oz. It measures 1 5/16" at it's tallest point with a 1 9/16" diameter.
