Description


These fine vintage Elizabeth II napkin rings have a plain circular cylindrical form.


The body of each napkin ring is embellished with a figural ornamentation realistically modelled in the form of a muzzled greyhound in a running stance.


The greyhound figures are divided into the front portion of the dog and the hind legs; these sections protrude from the anterior and posterior surfaces of the napkin rings.


Both sterling silver greyhound figures are struck with the standard mark 925 to the underside of the head.


The cylindrical ring of one napkin ring has been crafted in electroplated nickel silver - this piece would have been created to match the original sterling silver napkin ring.


Date: 1961

Condition


These vintage napkin rings are a very good gauge of silver, fine quality and in excellent condition.

The napkin rings have been professionally polished and are in presentation condition.

Full hallmarks struck to each napkin are all very clear.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of these pieces of vintage silverware.
