This napkin ring is a plain band of solid silver that measures 1 5/8" in diameter, stands 1 1/4" tall, and weighs just over 1.0 T. oz.
Made by Gorham, whose "lion, anchor, G" emblem is stamped on the inside, it is model number "673" which is also imprinted on the interior, along with the word "Sterling."
Dating circa 1880, it is Aesthetic or Eastlake in style, engraved in a pattern that is part foliate and part stylized.
It has a fancy, feathered script, "HMR" monogram.
The condition is very good. The engraving remains crisp, showing minimal polishing wear. The piece is free of dents or bends, but is slightly out of round. The finish is bright and warm.
