Description
Schnadig.Victor.K American Victorian Figural Napkin Rings- First Edition

Hardback with dustcover protected in loose mylar cover over original boards with gilt decoration and blocking to upper board.

Figural napkin rings-little charmers that encircle not only napkins, but also the hearts of thousands of collectors! Figural napkin rings-little charmers that are among the most collectible of all Victorian memorabilia!

Victor K. Schnadig himself is an avid collector. he has travelled all over the United States just to see (and sometimes to photograph) other collections.

In this delightful book, the first of its kind, he pictures over five hundred napkin rings! Seperated into fifteen chapters, the book's enchanting subject matter ranges from Kate Greenaway Children to Cupids and Cherubs, from Rings on Wheels to Rings with Salts and Peppers.

The author's own enthusiasm is infectious. Collectors, dealers, and antigue lovers will all enjoy his pictures, augmented by enlightening tidbits of information.

His is also a brief, but highly informative, study of the social history from which evolved the napkin- forerunners to the napkin ring!

Mr. Schnadig gives additional meaning to his book with an explanation of silver plate manufacturing as opposed to the silver craftsmenship that preceeded it. His listing of silver plate companies and their founding dates will enable readers of this book to date more readily their own figurals.

Half Title, Title, Dedication, Napkins, Contents, Foreward, Preface, Acknowledgements. xvii plus 153 page text, with numerous supporting images and illustrations.

Very Good.
