Antique, late Victorian silver plated napkin ring, oxidized blackened finish with bright cut decoration popular in the 1890s, and still bearing its label from the Siegel-Cooper Company store. We don't hear this name anymore, but when they built their second, flagship department store in NYC Ladies Mile in 1895, after huge success in Chicago, it was the largest store in the world at the time. They then expanded to Boston. If you have time, a quick read of their Wikipedia page is interesting. The NYC store was 18 acres of goods, at its peak employed about 3,000 people, mostly women.
The napkin ring measures one and five eighths inches wide. Good condition.
