Description


This exceptional antique Russian silver gilt napkin ring has a cylindrical form.


The exterior surface of the napkin ring is ornamented with cloisonné stylised leaf and interlacing strapwork designs accented with central floral motifs, all using green, white, red and blue polychrome enamel.


The enamel decoration incorporates a circular cartouche embellished with the contemporary engraved initials ’TE’ and retains the orignal gilding.


Both the upper and lower rims of the napkin ring are encircled with applied moulded borders.


The hallmarks struck to the rim of this impressive Russian napkin ring include:

Maker's mark:Adler

Silver quality/purity mark: 88 (88 zolotniks*)

City mark: St Petersburg**


* 84 zolotniki is the common purity of silver used for Russian silverware and 88 zolonik was used on higher quality work; this is equivalent to 916/1000 or .916 standard silver.


** The use of the dvoinik, the combined city and standard mark, was used between 1882-1899; this determines the date of this piece as circa 1890.


Condition


This antique Russian napkin ring is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional presentation condition.

The enamel is in perfect condition.

Russian hallmarks struck to the surface of the rim are all very clear in keeping with location.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of Russian silverware.
