Description: Sold without reserve.

medieval Rings with simple monograms, like this one, instead of signets, interlaced initials, or merchants marks, are relatively rare. They would not have been used for sealing but merely as signs of identification and status for the wearer. An oval disc-shaped bezel is engraved with the initials MR, and a round flat hoop joins the bezel at the shoulders.

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: Property of a United Kingdom private collection, 1980s.

Dimensions: Bezel 7 x 5 x 5 mm.; circumference 62 mm.; US size 10; UK size T

Medium: Gold

Date: 1600
