Description

Elizabethan gold signet ring with Scottish rampant lion. A solid gold signet ring comprising of a central flat discoid bezel with a ropework border, featuring a rampant heraldic lion facing to the left with jaws open and tongue extended, flanked by broad trumpeting shoulders which flow through to a solid tapering D-shape shank, approximately 7.79 grams in weight. Tested 22 carat yellow gold, English, circa 16th century, accompanied by a museum quality impression. This ring shows exceptional craftsmanship in its engraved details and is in fine condition commensurate with its age.
