Description: A lot of three rings, sold without reserve.

First, a bronze ring with thin band joined to an oval bezel with polished garnet cabochon.

Second, a metal ring with wide band, joined to a flat oval bezel with heightened center set with a garnet cabochon. Areas of heavy gilding remain surrounding the top of the bezel and the shoulders.

Third, a silver gilt ring with rounded band, flat on the interior, and decorated with Baroque ornaments on the shoulders, joined to a high oval bezel with a single groove around the edge, set with a coral intaglio of a woman her head tilted and slightly bowed. The coral cameo would probably have been acquired in Naples.

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.
