The subject on this great ring is very unusual. I don't know if it is based on an old story or if the designer brought a bit of his home life to his desk. On the front of the ring you will find a child that has brought the family dog to dinner and made sure an unhappy Fido has his napkin tied in placed! The backside of the ring reads: "Resolved that we never forget to put our napkin in the ring". Both the accent lines to the child and dog as well as the verbiage all appear to be hand 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 faint surface scratching from use and old style cleaners. But there are no cracks, holes, rips, deep scratches, nasty dents or repairs. The marks are on the interior and can be seen in the insert on photo # 3. The ring is fairly substantial - good and sturdy - weighing .93 ozs. It measures a hair under 1 1/8" tall with a 1 5/8" diameter. We are reasonably sure that this ring is Buster Brown and Tige, a very early representation.
