    I know this is meant to be only silver related but I didn't know where else to put it.

    Looks like a napkin holder to me. What's the inside diameter?

    I say it holds a scarf. You pull the scarf through the centre etc..??

    Also could be part of an old Pen.

    Certainly looks like a part - the pen suggestion is probably correct.

    I would say like a scarf holder... a WOGGLE? She may have been in the temperance society, maybe even the scouts and it held a society scarf. Seems strange to slot it to a lead pencil.... and there would be a set for napkin holders. Also, would you personally engrave napkins holders? For me, the engraving may be given when joining the club and serves as proof of membership.

    I really like the colour. Much better than the modern copper pipe rose gold.

    Thanks for showing it, it is interesting.

    Shiny.

    Even though the necklaces aren't for chewing, the chances of your baby gnawing off a bead and choking on it are too high, even if you watch him.
