Antique Figural Napkin Ring Pan Faun Cymbals Meriden Book Piece 1880s
This is a wonderful original silver plate antique Victorian figural napkin ring of a faun or Pan, #246 made by Meriden Silver Co, USA and made 1888-1890s.
The napkin ring features the god Pan or a faun with goat feet playing cymbals perched on the side of a hand hammered triangular napkin ring or holder.
The ring has some applied flowers on the other visible side of the ring.
The antique silver figural napkin ring measures 3 inches high by 2 long by 1.45 wide.
The figural napkin ring is in original condition and patina with tarnish but is in excellent used vintage condition with no plating loss and very little wear.
The napkin ring is pictured page 141 of the reference book Figural Napkin Rings by Gottschalk and Whitson and is from my personal collection.
These figural victorian napkin rings are becoming ever more difficult to find and this is a wonderful example as well as just the thing to still grace an elegant tea table.
A lovely example of whimsical Victoriana and very collectible.
