Re: cellar hole gold - Napkin Ring? /NT

It looks like a very nice napkin ring. Just a guess, but worth researching from that side of the question.

That's a gorgeous find! The fleur de lis motif may indicate a French origin. My first thought was napkin ring, must must have been some wealthy folks dining there!

Great find. Without seeing a pic of the backside, my guess is part of a pocket watch chain. You can see wear in the center when the swivel has worn a grove.
