So I'm one of those traditional blue-and-white kitchen and dining room people, so was happy to find these beautiful napkin rings. Had just redecorated my dining room, invited people for Thanksgiving, bought new linen napkins... and then forgot to use the napkin rings. OY But these are lovely, substantial in weight, and the decals look almost hand-painted. I bought eight, and they are just terrific. I may have to make them into a centerpiece so I remember to use them!
