Rather than the characteristic round or oval shape of most napkin rings, this piece is essentially rectangular. It has a flat bottom and top joined by arched sidewalls.
It is a large item, measuring 2 1/4" by 1 5/8" on the base and 1 3/4 by 1 5/8" on the top. It stands 1 3/16" tall and weighs a generous 1.3 T. oz.
The bottom and sides are reticulated in a leafy design and have engraved surfaces that complement this motif.
The top is also engraved in a flower and diamond cut pattern and has a large, period style, "LED" monogram.
Made by Whiting, it is imprinted with that company's "lion" logo, "Sterling," the model number "4287," and a date emblem for "1912."
It is in very good condition. There are no breaks or repairs and the engraving remains crisp. There is a slight bit of waviness to the underside, visible in the accompanying images.
