This item was recently purchased from an estate. Most of the Silverware was from the 1800’s. It’s a genuine piece antique Americana… Needless to say – products were made to last. …Last for generations.
The napkin ring, even though repaired, would still look interestingly elegant knotting a Kerchief. We must in fairness give some credit and consideration to the fact that it survived the America’s Civil War and it was too nice to throw in a silver pot. Very reasonably priced -- it makes for a tasteful, Valentine’s or Mother’s Day gift or nice addition to a historical silverware collection.
