Featuring a superb pair of large size sterling silver napkin rings in original satin lined box. Date circa 1880. Fresh from upper New York state estate. Engraved with very fine work around area for initials. Great borders with beading and lines. Slightly different finish on borders to central area which makes an interesting contrast. Diameter: 1 3/4" x 1 1/2" high. Excellent condition. Small area interior of one napkin ring which was scratched for testing(see photo). Not stamped but professionally tested at sterling(better than coin). Before the early 20th century, there were no laws in the USA for stamping sterling. Thus many early pieces are not stamped sterling. These date circa 1875. Weight: 42.9 grams.
