Georgian “Flora” Agate Intaglio Ring

$3,450.00


Description

DATE: Georgian, c.1800

This glorious signet ring is set with a large agate panel, carved with an intaglio of Flora - the Roman Goddess of Spring and Flowers. The detail is exquisite, and, rather magically, the "Hollow-Face Illusion" is in effect: whereby the brain perceives a concave (or intaglio) face as a normal convex face. Or, in other words, the face appears to stick out from the ring. A classic Georgian ring, modelled in 18k gold.
