Description: Late 19th-early 20th century

The design of the ring goes back to late 16th and 17th century prototypes. Numerous examples of this type in various collections often mistaken for Renaissance rings were made by students learning to become goldsmiths at the Staatliche Zeichenakademie in Hanau in Germany in the late 19th and early 20th century. A slender flat hoop supports a massive projecting bezel incised and decorated with black enamel. The stone has been cut into a pyramid capped with a small square crown, and the bezel and shoulders of the ring are adorned with cast grotteschi-derived strapwork ornament that bears substantial traces of enamel in red, white, and black.

Please note that this lot has a reserve and is part of a live auction with attending bidders. 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.
