I really love this cute VICTORIAN Figural Silver Napkin Ring available from my vintage shop nostalgi
Size 3-1/2 x 3 x 2 inches – 9 x 8 x 5 cm.
An original, charming and whimsical silver plated napkin ring from the Victorian era. This sweet piece features a dog begging toward an ornate scroll-edged napkin ring engraved with flowers, elevated on two scroll side supports. The design is fairly intricate, both embossed & etched.
The ornate edges and scroll supports are very detailed. There is also some beautiful work around the edges on the beveled rectangular base. There is a name tag on top for an engraved name.
The makers plate is on the bottom reads and states it is,
“Manufactured by Knickerbocker silver guaranteed – 207- high grade metal’
(Knickerbocker Silver company date marks 1894-1903)
I haven’t cleaned the piece, still in original condition as found with tarnishes and patinas. It is in excellent, antique condition with no signs of surface wear to speak of.
