I DO NOT HAVE THIS ONE
Someone has been craetive to come up with this fake FNR. the cat and ring from above were added to a sled.
It is marked Stix & L'Allemand NY 60. I have looked these people up and they were jewellers in NY, so may ahve even made it up themseves.
Gee, so it could be original then. Acyually the cat is turned slightly more sideways so this could very well be an original.







2 x Very similar to the one above but with a hexagonal shaped ring. In near mint condition.
One of the rings has a slight matt-like finish typically used by the Knickerbocker Silver Co.
It is not shown in the book by Gottschalk and Whitson, so was not in their collection or their friends when the book was written.




As above but with a square ring on its side. marked Knickerbocker Silver Co.

This figural napkin rimng has two cats standing on their hind legs supporting the napkin holder on top of their heads.
Maker and number not marked. 




This napkin ring has the same cat as above, but the cat is standing on an ornate circular footed pedestal base,
and the napkin ring rests on the cats back and turned up tail.
It is unmarked as to the maker, but I believe it is an authentic antique figural napkin ring.




In this figural napkin ring, a large cat is standing up at the side of the napkin holder looking at, and about to swoop a fly.
Very detailed. Marked Barbour Silver Co. #14. This ring is shown in the book G&W on page 10, in plate 7, but the one they had was unmarked.
This one is clearly marked and authentic, so in a sense we have identified the maker and number of this ring. Not all rings that were made were marked.

In excellent condition. May have been resilvered.
