This is a beautiful vintage Slavic Napkin Ring and I thought it would be perfect for holding crystal spheres.
The painting featured on these rings is called Khokhloma (also Hohloma, Russian: хохлома; Russian pronunciation: [xəxlɐˈma]) or Khokhloma painting (хохломская роспись, Khokhlomskaya rospis) is the name of a Russian wood painting handicraft style and national ornament, known for its curved and vivid mostly flower, berry and leaf patterns. Often Firebird, the figure from the Russian fairytale, is also depicted.
A combination of red, black, and gold are typical colors for Khokhloma. When painted on wood, in most cases red, black, green, yellow and orange are used over a gold background. The effect it has when applied to wooden tableware or furniture, making it look heavier and metallic.
