Description 1881 GORHAM STERLING NAPKIN RING, CHILDREN "HATCHING" FROM EGGS, EXTRAORDINARY

This innovative design by Gorham features four round cartouches. Breaking out of each cartouche, as if it were a round egg, are four wonderful children. Around each child's portrait are what appear to be broken bits of eggshell. There is a boy in a hat with long curly hair, a girl with part of her bonnet showing, a very young child with hands together, and another young child with lots of curls in a straw hat tipped back and holding a flowering branch. Between each pair of cartouches are Art Nouveau blooming plants. Finished by double bands, this hand hammered napkin ring is stunning indeed. The diameter of the opening is 1.75 inches and the width is also 1.75 inches. The weight is 1.94 ounces or 55.1 grams, very heavy for a napkin ring. The napkin ring is in excellent condition. "Clare Allen" is inscribed on the interior band of the ring.The napkin ring is fully marked with the Gorham symbols-lion, anchor and "G", as well as marked "sterling", the pattern number "1370", and the date letter, "N", from which we can date the napkin ring as made in 1881.
