Antique Georgian Date 1794 Enamelled Mourning Ring

Item #5208

£900.00

In really wonderful condition, this antique Georgian enamelled memorial ring has been affectionately preserved for two centuries, and has surely touched three lifetimes. The inscription which has been picked out against the black enamel reads 'THOs SWANWICK DIED 22 DEC 1794 AGED 75'. In rich 22ct gold, the hallmark is lovely and clear; interestingly dated for 1817 (23 years after the death of Thomas Swanwick) with a nice George III head. 

The dimensions are 6.5mm wide and 1mm thick. We're unable to adjust the size due to the enamel work, but the size is currently 'Q/8/17/57'.

We post for free to UK/EU, enquire if you'd like delivery to another destination.
