Description

DATE: Vintage, 1940s

A 1940s Prison Ring crafted from celluloid and set on the face with a portrait photograph. These ring would have been made from whatever everyday items were available, toothbrushes or pens etc, and celluloid was preferred as it could be heat bonded as opposed to glued (glue was scarce in prison...) I'd love to know the full story behind this piece: who made it and who was she?
