PAIR EDWARD VII SILVER IRISH DISH-RING FORM NAPKIN RINGS

Williams, Ltd., Birmingham, 1905

 

 

An unusual pair of silver napkin rings formed as miniature c1775-80 George III “Irish dish rings”,

each of typical waisted form with reeded rims,

the sides having pierced pales and circling garlands with dependent swags,

below alternating plain and flowerhead medallions,

fully marked with maker’s mark “W.B.Ltd.”, Birmingham and date mark “f”

 

Irish dish rings” are often erroneously referred to as “potato rings”.

They were used as were “dish crosses” to support a hot bowl or dish, and without a glass liner.

Very few dish rings were made in the 18th century, most occurring from 1890-1920.

Although open salts in this form are sometimes found (with added glass liners),

Napkin ring forms (with rim diameters being equal) are very infrequently seen.
