ANCIENT ARTEFACTS CATEGORY

15th Century Posy Ring - Inscribed " LOVE AND OBAYE"


This ring would have been a beautiful piece of jewellery in it's day.
There are still traces of gold coloured gilding on the ring's surface and
it is possible that the letters were once filled in with a coloured enamel.
