Vintage Brass Napkin Rings
The napkin ring element of our dining tables has historical roots in France.
In the 1800s, the bourgeoisie invented it as a way to identify the napkins of a household between weekly wash days, and it wasn’t long before the idea spread to the rest of the world. In those early years, napkin rings were made out of a variety of materials such as silver, wood, glass, bone, and, by the early twentieth century, Bakelite. Some are simple in their construction; others more intricate, and often described as 'table jewellery'.
The rings here are a beautiful set of 6 with ornament engraving. The signs of age on these rings are marked with rustic edges seen in the pictures; an authentic vintage look.
