squirrel eating nuts next to a wavy shaped unengraved napkin ring, unmarked. thinner and bigger ring than one above.





The squirrel was a very popular figural in figural napkin rings.

Marked van Bergh SP Co. #3.



Similar to the ring above but marked Barbour 7

Marked Apollo Silver Co. 133, who only made a few napkin rings in their short time of existence.



the ring on the left is quite similar to the one above (on right in this photograph),
with sight variation to ring shape, and the squirrel on other side of the ring.
Marked Apollo Silver Co, 135





This is a lovely figural napkin ring with an unusual shaped napkin ring with a divided swirling pattern on either side of the ring.
The maker's name is not marked on this, as far as I can tell, but I guarantee it is a genuine antique figural napkin ring.
I cannot find any reference to it from my books etc, so it must be quite rare. The detail on the squirrel is as per usual superb.





squirrel eating nuts next to a ring covered over with an oak leaf, marked 85






3 x A squirrel eating nuts next to a wavy shaped napkin ring, marked Rockford 139.
Below is what I wrote about the second ring when it was on ebay. CKH
This is a stunning antique American figural napkin ring c1880 which has a nibbling on an acorn or nut on a large leaf base. The detail is extraordinary. There are even spinkles of silver on the leaf base. which I believe are intentional as I have seen this before (only on rings in great condition). 

It is marked as Rockford Silver P Co. with the pattern/patent number 139. It is in excellent/near mint condition.

I cannot find this figural napkin ring in the book by Gottschalk and Whitson's book "Figural napkin Rings: Collectors Identification and Value Guild", but I guarantee it is authentic. The fact that it is not shown in G&W just means it is very rare and they were unable to get a photo of it for their book.

I cannot find any USA auction results for this figural napkin ring.


This figural napkin ring is in excellent near mint condition.  I have not polished it, or even clean it. It JUST ARRIVED and came from the same estate in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, as the cherub/swan and horse rings I am also listing. It may have been resilvered but the makers stamp is very pronounced so may have just been kept very well and cleaned before sold at auction. See photos for yourself. It is just stunning and the best condition I have ever seen.






In this FNR a squirrel stands underneath a ring on an ornate pedestal and base. Marked 222.






A squirrel with glass eyes stands next to a ring blowing a horn.
Marked RS & Co (Rogers Smith & Co., same as meriden B Company) 281




This is a lovely figural napkin ring with a squirrel on a rectangular base.
It is marked as made by Rogers Smith & Co. (combined with Meriden B Company in 1856) and has the production/patent/patent number 194. 
It is NOT shown in the book by Gottschalk and Whitson's book "Figural napkin Rings: Collectors Identification and Value Guild", so is quite rare. 



2 x This figural napkin ring is similar in design to the one above, different base, fancier napkin holder.
It is marked as made by Wm Rogers Mfg. Co. and has the production/pattern number 256.
Wm Rogers did not make many figural napkin rings so this is a rare example.  

This figural napkin ring is NOT shown in the book by Gottschalk and Whitson's book "Figural napkin Rings: Collectors Identification and Value Guild", so is very rare.
It means it was not part of their collection in 1996 or that of their associtaes. CKH






lovely squirrel on base napkin ring, marked Simpson Hall Miller & Co. #60.
In very good to excellent condition; ring just needs to be rounded on an anvil.


Two squirrels sit upright at either end of this figural napkin ring, with the ring sitting on a pedestal.
This ring is based on the design of an earlier sterling silver napkin ring made by Gorham (see sterling silver section).
Marked Harford Silver Plate Co. # 01. Must have been the first figural Hartford made.
It does look a bit rough which might suggest it is a reproduction but I have seen this ring before and elsewhere so I think it is authentic.



A lovely squirrel figural napkin ring. Unmarked as to maker and number.
Definitely an oldie. 




a squirrel eating nuts sits on top of a tapered log-shaped napkin ring, decorated with leaves and nuts.



A squirrel sits on a branch which also forms the base for the napkin ring with a decorated edge.
I cannot find any markings on it, but it is definitely an oldie. Condition is excellent.




This squirrel figural napkin ring is similar to the one above but the branches are longer (there is nothing wrong with the previous ring).
It too is unmarked as to maker and number but is pictured in Schnadig's book.



Similar to ones abobe but slighltly different branch, setting and ring.
Marked Villiers & Co. England.





2 x This squirrel figural napkin ring has a squirrel underneath some oak tree branches with oak leafs and acorns all on a large oak leaf base.
The napkin holder sits above the squirrel and branches.

It is marked Reed & Barton 1497 and in pictured in G&W.



This squirrel figural napkin ring has a squirrel climbing up a tree trunk with the ring on top with a bird on top of the ring.
It is marked Reed & Barton 1450. It is not in the G&W collection so is quite rare.
It looks like the squirel is looking for the bird and the bird to looking out for the squirrel.





I am not sure what this animal is. It looks like a squirrel with the long ears, probably a rabbit, but has a bushy tail like a squirrel.
I'm calling it a rabbit. It is marked 0259 under the animal.
 





3 x A squirrel pulls along a napkin ring sitting on a branch with a leaf and berry. In very good to excellent condition.
I cannot see any maker's name or number. That is how it appears in the books anyhow. Guaranteed Victorian though.

It is shown in the book by Gottschalk and Whitson's book "Figural napkin Rings: Collectors Identification and Value Guild", in plate 160 on page 73. 
They valued it at $200-$350 in 1996. They say the maker and number were not marked when made. ATK





2 x The first one is clearly marked James Dixon & Son. EPBM 8708.
The second is hard to read and but seems to be a different maker.
I can make out NDER or NDERS or NDER& on one line, and perhaps DHE or even DHEY on second line.
Both of exceptional quality; comparable to the American stuff. The first is definitely English.
The second could well be American. 





This superb figural napkin ring is made by the Toronto Silver plate Company.
It has the number 1102.
It has a squrirrel sitting high up on a branch that wraps around the top of the napkin holder.
