  A large well formed rose with leaves decorates this napkin ring which sits on an oval tiered and footed base, marked Winsted Silverplate Co.. I cannot find out much about this company, but they are noted as a 19th century silverplate company based in Winsted,  and they are mentioned in Gottschalk & Whitson's book on Figural Napkin Rings. This particular ring was also made by the Wm Rogers Mfg Co, as noted in Gotschalk and Whitson's book, and was numbered number 4. The Wm Rogers Mfg Co. is one of the oldest silverplate companies in the USA, and this being numbered "4" would make it one of the first figural napkin rings which was produced after 1869, when it all started. The napkin rings I have are also marked number 4. The condition is excellent to near mint, no plate wear, nice patina, no dents, etc..I only have one of these figural napkin rings now. I think the one on the right has gone.

Somewhat similar to th one above with a flower surrounded by leaves.
This one is marked Wm Rogers Mfg. Co. #4

2 x rectangular c1900 figural napkin rings with a rose bud and rose leaf decoration on top. They belonged to Bud and Mary (probably a married couple). The rings look similar but different, but I think you will find that the bottom leaf on the right side ring has been raised with respect to the corresponding leaf on the left side ring. It may have been made that way. They are unmarked but are authentic Victorian and look to be silverplated. I may investgate further at a later date.

This is another pair of rings with 4 leaves forming the base and the napkin holder consists of two crossed ribbons.
There is a flower on top of ribbons where they cross. They are marked on opposite ends. Note where the flowers sits.
