Ring-Ring

Hello!  Welcome to Applejack Lane for the last Silver Sunday of the season.  I am happy to have participated in this and that it will become a monthly event. Today, I want to share my napkin ring collection.  Napkin rings are easy to find and do not take that much space to display. Mine edge the shelves in a corner cupboard in the living room. Most are sterling although some are silver plated and pewter. It is interesting to me to examine the intricate designs and monogramming on them.  Some of the script is so elaborate that I cannot tell what letters they represent.  If I turn some of them upside down, I can see totally different initials. 



 Here are some of my favorites mounded in what else but a silver Revere bowl...

Love your napkin rings -- in fact, I covet your napkin rings! I collect them, too, and they must have a name or initial on them! And they are so fun to use! And the best part, when traveling, you don't have to worry about them getting broken getting them home!

WOW> You have just sparked a new desire for me to collect napkin rings. I once saw seme that has beautifully engraved numbers on them and was told they were from a cruise ship. Why didn't I buy them???? Gorgeous photography too.\\Chania

Sherrie said...

I love your mosaic photo of the rings. I have got to figure out how to do that. The rings are as shiny and pretty as the kind of rings worn. Thanks for sharing.

Oh, how thrilled I am that you shared your napkin ring collection. I do think they look fabulous filling that Revere bowl, but I appreciate that you show them individually as well. I felt like I could almost pick them up and get a closer look. Thank you!
I have a collection of silver napkin rings from France. I agree they are the perfect little collectable . . . easy to transport, easy to store, and so beautiful! I use mine all the time! Happy Silver Sunday!
