Pair of matching antique 1910s Webster sterling silver napkin rings, his and hers, handsome piercings and engraving on the fronts, one monogrammed A.M., the other S. M. Napkin rings were only used for family meals and never entertaining, until the 1950s. They were for private, family use, so that each person used their specific ring to hold the same napkin all week until laundry day, when the linens were cleaned. This is why you only find singles of antique and very vintage napkin rings; each person had their own, and they were added at different times as the family grew, often monogrammed or engraved with the persons name or nickname. The only time you find pairs, are for his and hers, which were usually a wedding gift, to start the couple off. Charmingly, a popular wedding gift was a pair engraved Monsieur and Madame.

The rings measure 2.25 x a hair under 1.25 inches, and are .75 inch wide. Excellent condition both, no issues. Freshly hand polished.
