Victorian napkin ring

I tried this the other day, but the image was gone. BETTER:

Image found on eBay August 9, 2013:

From this e-bay listing, the notes were:
This listing is for a wonderful Victorian Period Silverplated figural "Wheelbarrow" napkin ring made by Pairpoint.

The Pairpoint Corp., New Bedford, MA. was established in 1880 as Pairpoint Mfg. Co. and ceased operations in 1958. This napkin ring is in nice Estate condition with no damage or repairs, has not been polished.

Measures 2" high, 3 1/2" long and 1 5/8" wide.

The base is stamped with Pairpoint;s "P" in a diamond trademark and stamped "Pairpoint & Co., Quadruple Plate #146" on the base.

We are currently listing several of these nice Victorian figural napkin rings from the same extensive collection so please check our other great Store items.

(What's below was sent out August 7, but the images were down. I'm not sure how similar they are.)

This antique Victorian figural Wheelbarrow napkin Ring is in very good condition. it features the name Frank on top of the flowered design top and sides. The wheelbarrow is all intact. The ring is slightly out of round.(see photos). The bottom reads:James W Tufts Boston (above the five pointed star). it reads: (below the five pointed star) Warranted Quadruple Plate 1537. The five pointed star has the letter T in the middle, which is the Tufts makers mark. It measures: 2 3/4"H. by 1 1/2"W.

An image of the napkin ring is there. It has intimidating copyright notices. Go and look, though.
