Looking for the realized and estimated price?

Description: Sold without reserve.

Possibly 1st-3rd century AD.

Glass paste intaglio gems imitate more valuable intaglios and were widespread in the ancient Roman Empire. The intaglio of a quadruped (perhaps a horse?) is well worn and set inside a stepped oval bezel, the band made of hammered gold with beaded wire along outer edges.

When you leave a bid in advance of the auction, submit your maximum. Invaluable will bid on your behalf as much as necessary to ensure that you meet the reserve price or that you remain in the lead, up to your maximum. The bidder who has submitted the highest bid wins the lot, provided the bid exceeds the reserve price.

Provenance: Alexander Gallery, New York, 2006; formerly property of an East Coast collection.

Dimensions: Circumference 60.4 mm.; US size 9.25, UK size S 1/4

Medium: Gold, white glass paste

Date: 150
