DESCRIPTION:

This napkin ring was given to my aunt’s father who was a ‘plank owner’ aboard the USS Shangri-La (CV-38). When I first saw this napkin ring I immediately wanted to turn one. Not only do I appreciate being able to recreate a part of history… I really like the design.

This is a case where form follows function. I’ve spent my share of time at sea and can appreciate the functionality of the flat section; however, the design aspect of it is what sets these rings off from traditional round napkin rings.
