I have a pair of ovoid napkin rings that are stamped

Customer Question

I have a pair of ovoid napkin rings that are stamped "TIFFANY & CO." Other stamps are "925" within an oval, "STERLING," "ITALY," and upside down from the rest is a star and "176" and "F1." Sadly, I suspect that they are forgeries.

Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.
I have been an antiques collector, dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.
I will be pleased to help you.

Please know that I cannot accept any requests for "live conversations" such as phone calls.
I give my best answers in writing when I have time to think about them.
Sometimes a "Chat box" will pop-up asking if you would like a live conversation. Please know it is not from me.

Please send me a photo of the napkin rings.

Kind regards,

Doris

As I mentioned in my introduction, I do not take live conversations.

Too much research needs to be done to give "off the cuff" answers.

I prefer to communicate in writing so that I can be sure you are receiving well-researched answers.

It would be best to actually see your napkin rings.

To send photos you may use the "attach file" or "add file" link on your reply page or the "paper clip" found in the toolbar you see on your reply page.

Kind regards,

Doris
