Victorian Era Antique Napkin Ring Lily Pad

This is another Victorian Era Antique Napkin Ring in my personal collection.

This is a Meridian Brittanica Co. Number 168 and consists of a lily leaf (pad) with a lily bud on the handle. In 1888 it sold for $1.33 but in today's market it is worth just under $200.00

Victorian Era Antique Napkin Ring Lion

This is another Victorian Era Antique Napkin Ring in my personal collection.

I like this little lion but his tail is missing. Some great designs on the ring holder part add to its appeal.

If it were in good condition this little napkin ring would be worth $200.00-$300.00. As is it's worth around $100.00

I don't even want to tell you how little I paid for it. Okay, twist my arm. I got this little gem for $3.00. He's fine for the Christmas table.

Victorian Era Antique Napkin Ring - Bird and Wishbone

This is another Victorian Era Antique Napkin Ring in my personal collection.

It isn't my favourite. I'm not fond of these disembodied heads of birds and animals sticking out from the ring part. But my grandchildren love it and always hope they get it as theirs on the Christmas table.
