Hi this is my first post and I'm just starting out in my collection of silver items.
I'm after some advice on these napkin rings which are currently for sale on Ebay. I was thinking about buying them but wasn't sure about the maker, they are by Hilliard and Thomason, now I have never heard of them but the engravings are attractive and I was wondering whether the current price of 55 the pair is a fair price also is the make collectable?

I have included a link to the advert.

Any info much appreciated

Many thanks

Jeff

what you need to ask yourself here is, 'do i like these?' not 'are they any good'. Collections are about your idea of quality and appeal. You will learn from mistakes along the way.
