This lovely napkin ring has a delicate top and bottom curlicue rim. The top of the ring has been done with a focal point of a nice sized area comprised of a border consisting of some of the same curlicues as well as a couple leaves and petite flowers as accents. At the top and bottom of this area are two matching patterns of pierced squares accented with exterior flowing leaves and groups of the same small flowers. The presentation reads: "Mother" "Sep. 10" "02". The back and sides of the ring have been left with smooth un-patterned silver. The ring is in excellent condition and has good shape being within 1/8" of perfect roundness. This slightly oval shape MAY be original to the ring as it places the focal point at one end of the faint oval. Never having seen this ring before I just don't know it's original shape. 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, broken borders on the piercing or repairs. The marks are on the interior and can be seen in the insert on photo # 4. The makers mark has a very blurred interior but from it's exterior outline it may be for Towle Silversmiths. The ring is nicely substantial - good and sturdy - weighing 1.31 ozs. It measures 1 11/16" tall with an approximate 1 13/16" diameter.
