A lovely Corgi or Chitchiwawa dog stands next to a waisted and engraved napkin ring with heavy beading along the edges. Marked F.M. Rogers Mfg. Co. Hartford Conn. number 287. The ring is shown in G&W page 17, plate 24. They say it is a Welsh Corgi (Pembroke).

In this figural napkin ring a bloodhound on rocky base, marked with a badge saying hard white metal, quadruple plate, cannot find number.
I have seen a similar figural napkin ring (witha different napkin holder, not sure if it was original) made by Derby Silver Co. and number 17.
I cannot indentify the symbol in the middle of the badge, but it does look a bit like (not the same though) the one by
Kronheimer & Oldenbusch Co., NY. I have also seen an inkwell (which could also have been an ashtray/cigarette and match holder) with the same or very similar dog and terrain made by Kronheimer & Oldenbusch Co., NY. Here is a photos of that item.

Both in excellent condition, with nice patina dog.
Shown in the collector's book "Figural Napkin Rings: Collector's Identification and Value Guide", by Gottschalk and Whitson (G&W), on page 27, plate 53. 
The Simpson Hall Miller & Co. was started in Wallington CT in 1866 by Samuel Simpson.
The first figural napkin ring was produced in 1868/69, and given the low number of this napkin ring I would say it was made in the 1870s perhaps.







a small bulldog stands alongside an unusually decorated napokin ring, unmarked, but shown in Schnadig's book page 75. In excellent condition.


a bulldog stands alongside an unusually shaped and cut napkin ring, unmarked, but antique and authentic.
In excellent condition.






as above with same ring but a slightly different engraving on the ring, which goes to show that they were individually hand-engraved.


A pair of figural bulldog napkin rings, which came from the same estate/house so probably belonged to a couple.
It is amazing when you find pairs like this because it means they (the napkin rings) stayed together for 120 to 130 years.
Quite amazing really. One of these rings is like the one above, whereas the other has a different ring attached.


Another bulldog figural napkin ring with a different ring. Unmarked


A bulldog sits on a base next to a napkin ring elevated from the base like a trophy. marked W inside a web (for Webster Silver Co.) #220.

2 x A small dog walks on either side of this napkin ring which is in the shape of a purse.
All sitting on a very decorative base. In near mint condition, made by The Van Bergh S.P. Co. and numbered # 97.
Both in excellent condition, one near mint, other with beautiful patina. I believe the dogs are labradors.
 Not shown in the book by Gottschalk and Whitson's book "Figural napkin Rings: Collectors Identification and Value Guild", so is a very rare figural napkin ring. 





This is a large figural napkin ring with dogs on either side of the ring with a cherub sitting on top. On a decorated rectangular base. Made by Osborn Co. Lancaster, and numbered 709. This ring is shown in G&W.


This figural napkin ring is made by the same company as the one above, same dog and design on the base. Marked Osborne Co. 708, so the one preceeding the above. In nice aged condition.




2 x In this figural napkin ring, a greyhound or whippet sits on a leaf base with the ring behind the dog.
This ring was made unmarked.
In very good to excellent condition.





2 x This figural napkin ring has two greyhounds sitting on either side of the base with the napkin holder sitting above the base on top of their heads.
It is marked Simpson, Hall, Miller & Co. 01.
It is not "10" but 01, as 10 was used for a combination set.
And the first few figural napkin rings made by Simpson Hall and Miller started with a zero, like 06, 07 (the sailor boy rings in people_male have these numbers in fact).
I would think this was possibly the very first figural napkin ring that Simpson Hall Miller & Co. made.
The ring does not appear in the book by Gottschalk and Whitson's book "Figural Napkin Rings: Collectors Identification and Value Guild", or in the book by Victor Schnadig "American Victorian Figural napkin rings", so must be quite rare. It was not in their collection or their friends.





A greyhound sits patiently next to a pieced napkin ring with rope design, on a wavy base. marked Made in England with hallmarks attributed to J.E Bushel, c1900. In near mint conition.




2 x rip van winkles dog pulling ring on wheels, marked Simpson Hall Miller & Co. 033.

The first one has been resilvered.
 in G&W in plate 62 on page 31.







A pug dog pulls the napkin holder on wheels like a cart. Unmarked as to maker as far as I can tell. In excellent condition.






This figural napkin ring has the same dog as in the one above. Note it is similar to the dog in some of the rings above but it is facing the other way. This ring has been resilvered as the silversmith has scratched his marking on the bottom as is usual. The ring is however made by Kann & Sons Mfg. Co., Baltimore, USA. I have not heard of this company before so they must have only made a few figural naplin rings. It does not have a number. The ring has a lovely  Greek key pattern along the edges and the dog and ring sit on a curved oval base.





This figural napkin ring has a dog on one side and a pheasant on the other side, all sitting on a very ornate oval shaped base.
Marked Toronto S.P. Company 1134. In excellent condition.

In excellent condition. Marked Meriden Silverplate Co. 275.
Shown in the book by Gottschalk and Whitson, "Figural Napkin Rings: Collectors Identification and Value Guide" on page 34, in plate 68. 
Valued at $200-$350 in 1996.




This is in a very similar theme to the ring above but with the cat replaced by a branch/log, and the base is a leaf.
Marked Meriden Silverplate Co. 0239.
I have not seen this figural napkin ring before, and it is not in G&W, so is super rare.







This dog appears on a figural toothpick holder and on another figural napkin ring that is in G&W's book.
This one is not shown in G&W but is original and rare. I cannot see any maker's mark or number but guaranteed authentic.





I have put both of these rings in the dog section even though one has a cat as well.
They are quite similar, as they have the same dog and base and a barrel.
The barrel in the cat & dog ring is raised on "wooden" supports.
The pattern on the barrels is also slightly different.
They have the same base.
Both are made by Chas W. Hamill & Co..
Chas W. Hamill & Co. is listed as a silverplate manufacturer in Baltimore active in the 1880's, so might not have survived for long.
One site says they existed from 1876 to 1884.
They are marked 6?9, and could be bothe be 619, but the 1 is not clear in either one and is slightly different to a 1 in both cases.
I think Chas. Hamill and Co. may have just made a few figural napkin rings, these being 2 of them. 
They may have also been especially made from a client and slightly different.
I have just found the cat and dog ring in G&W plate 68 on page 34.
They say it is number 619.
Also in that multi-plate they have another similar ring by Chas. Hamill & Co., which has a dog and cat but the cat is on the base now.




This figural napkin ring features a goat and a dog. the goat is reared up so its head touches the napkin holder.
it is marked Webster Mf'g #148. It is shown in the book G&W.





2 x FNR a dog is pulling along a ring on a sleigh.
Marked Meriden Silverplate Co. 285.

Shown in G&W on page 18 in plate 26.
I think I SOLD the second replated one.








2 x A dog with glass eyes holds a  bone with one leg next to a ring. maker and number unmarked.
Shown in G&W page 23 plate 41. Loacted to have been made by James W. Tufts 1547.
The pattern on the ring reminds me of Tufts other works.





A really large dog holds a ring on its back/neck with a rope through its mouth.
Marked Reed & Barton 1185. The one in G&W collection is only numbered.
