Victorian "Bathing Birds" Intaglio Signet Ring

$1,350.00


Description

DATE: Victorian, c.1890

A cool and very unusual antique signet ring, set with a hand-carved bloodstone panel. The intaglio depicts two birds, bathing at a small pool of water... the detail is exceptional, and the subject is not the normal heraldry or monogram that we would expect from the era. It's modelled in 18k yellow gold, and dates to c.1890.
