'IN MEMORY OF' Date 1830 Enamelled Mourning Ring


In wonderful condition, a mourning band to the memory of a young woman lost at a tender age. Inscribed to the inner circle of the band to 'Ann Shore ob 2 August 1830, aet 18', alongside a lovely clear full hallmark for London 1830, the first year of the reign of William IV and the maker's mark for Thomas Gaunt. 

Sadly this ring seems to be a scarce trace left of her short passage on earth, we haven't been able to trace any more regarding Ann's life but that she was buried on 11th August in Feltham, Hounslow. 

The ring size can't be altered due to the design, it measures as a 'V' or US '10.5' and so we judge it would likely have belonged to a man, perhaps her father.
