A cased set of six George V silver napkin rings by Henry Griffith & Sons Ltd, Birmingham 1937, each plain polished D-shaped ring with raised rims, 2.13ozt, the fitted domed case 13cm long
Overall condition is good. None of the rings so major denting or signs of repair. On the inside of the rings, there are scratches and the beginnings of splitting, varying from a few to many across all pieces (please see pictures for illustration). A couple of the rings show some slight denting/misshaping to the rims.
The condition of the box is poor. There is very heavy wear and discoloration to the silk lining in the lid (as seen in pictures). There is also wear to the purple velvet lining of the box and dividers, most concentrated at the highpoints. The leather exterior is heavily worn and scratched. Hinges to the lid seem secure, and the latch opens and closes smoothly. Please note: the dividers in the box are fitted to the base and not the sides, and can be adjusted accordingly.
