Antique figural Victorian silverplate napkin ring with interesting curling water lily handle on a lily pad. It is marked on the bottom "Meriden B. Company", and is number "168". It is engraved or etched with initials on the top (hard to read but maybe "E. A. G."). There is also a flower pattern on the top, and a line pattern on the lily pad base (photos). This impressive large silver plate napkin ring measures about 2 1/2 inches in height and is about 3 3/4 inches across the widest part, including the handle. It is in lovely condition, with no breaks, dings, or repairs, and only a minor scratch or two that you would expect in a vintage item that has been lovingly used. It has only been gently polished, and the buyer may choose to polish it more.
