Description

Norman gold ring with lion. A yellow gold ring, the tapering shank decoratively enhanced with a finely modeled and carved figure of an outstretched lion proceeding over the shoulders, the bottom of the shank enriched with a series of deep grooves, approximately 10.1g in weight. Tested yellow gold, circa 11th-12th century AD.

The lion was of particular significance to the Normans, who used it as a symbol of their court and incorporated it in to various forms of heraldry. A powerful image, the lion represents the attributes of strength, courage and authority.
