Description

Gold posy ring 'At your service'. A smoothly conforming solid D-shape band, engraved to the interior in italic script 'At your service', approximately 3mm in width. Tested yellow gold, indistinct maker's mark, possibly a 'K' within a square punchmark, approximately 3.1g in weight, circa 18th century.

To date, there is no recorded example of this posy known, making this piece completely matchless. See Evans, J., 'English Posies and Posy Rings', 1931, for the fullest catalogue of posy mottos recorded.
