Tartanware napkin rings, also known as Mauchlineware for the Scottish town (Mauchline) in which these were made. These date to sometime around the turn of the century.

Ink machines created tartan patterns on paper, which was then applied to wooden objects made of sycamore, such as boxes, napkin rings, egg darners and various other items. Many layers of shellac were applied to protect the printed paper. Tartanware was produced until 1933 when fire destroyed the machinery that created the patterned paper.

Condition: Except for a couple of tiny spots of wear to the paper, mostly on just one ring, these are in very nice antique condition.

The patterns of these 3 napkin rings are called Wallace, McDuff and Chisholm.
