Heraldry Family Crest Signet Ring 18k Gold Vintage Art Deco c1920.
Simply stunning family crest heraldry signet ring in 18ct yellow gold dating from the Art Deco period. Fantastic crisp detailing to the crest in this heavy 18ct gold ring which really is a statement piece.
The crest contains many heraldry symbols, but we have been unable to identify the family name or the person who it belongs to, mainly as we are still in the learning phase, if you can help it would gratefully be received. To the very top which we believe is called the crest is a crown with a swag flowing down the sides of the crest. Just below the swag is a sword possibly on a knight, with a bishop's mitre hat to the one side the other a lion again both on what seems to be a knight. The shield of arms contains in the 1st & 4th quarter a stag & a cross to the 2nd & 3rd, to the very centre is another shield with crossed battle axes. Please see the pictures as like stated I am still learning so the terms may be slightly incorrect.
The gold mark can be found to the rear of the head, this mark simply reads '.750' for 18ct gold. The ring is also marked with the letter 'm' but we are unsure as to its meaning relevance.
