Fostoria American Napkin Ring

Napkin Ring


Item Number:  492
Approximate Size:  2″ D – ¾” W
Production Dates:  1973-1982

Put simply, the Napkin Rings are precious.  I use that term because they are not to be used carelessly.  Of all the American pieces produced, these would classify as some of the most fragile.  The reason for that is because the glass ring is somewhat thin – just a little over ⅛” thick.  These are pieces that I don’t recommend just throwing on the table; they will need to be placed and handled with care.

The Napkin Rings were only produced for a few years, and due to their fragile nature, they won’t be as plentiful when treasure hunting.  Please do not confuse them with the Fostoria “American Lead Crystal” Napkin Rings.  Fostoria made several different napkin rings over the years; however, the American pattern (Line 2056) was not made out of lead crystal.  The different napkin rings were packaged in similar boxes, so pay special attention to the design of the napkin rings.
