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.

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

It has no makers' mark and is a barrel being held by leaves and branches.

A similar napkin holder sells for $200.00

Heart Snuff Box for Thomas Watters, Miller

Top of wood and brass antique snuff box engraved for a local miller named Thomas Watters. 

The heart that you see has a beautiful peacock engraved on it. And that is where you open the snuff box. It's rather tricky to do!
