Restoring Antique and Vintage Napkin Rings to Near New Condition.

by Edinburgh Silver


This Antique solid silver hallmarked Napkin Ring was made by the renowned Wm. Hutton of London in 1898 and restored by Edinburgh Silver in 2019

Photograph one shows the condition we receive silver Napkin rings in. We usually but these from auction. This one is in poor condition and very tarnished. This is what happens when a piece of silver is left in a drawer for about one hundred years.
