FAB! Silver OWL Ring on Ancient Athenian Coin
This is such a WONDERFUL 3 Dimensional ~ Sculptural Ring depicting a "Wise Old OWL". There are several reasons for this. The overall design is taken from the Ancient Greek Coin from Athens (prior to the period of Alexander The Great) known as the Tetradrachm. The OWL was used because it was the symbol for WISDOM.
The detailing on this unusual silver accessory is FABULOUS! He has a very primitive ~ folky appearance. I LOVE his face with the 'sunken' eyes! 800 Silver Bird Ring is not thin or tinny - Weighs 6 Grams. "Coin" MEASURES Over 3/4 Inches in Diameter, Ring Band is over 1/8 Inch Wide, Ring Size ~ 4 1/2 (could be resized by an experienced bench jeweler) - too big for my Pinky finger. It is lightly Stamped '800' on the reverse of the coin.
Numismatic design jewelry is in VERY GOOD CONDITION! This WISE Old Owl also appears to have “blackened” ~ oxidized highlights.... has not been cleaned ~ polished - direct from a Mohawk Valley Estate.
DON’T Miss YOUR chance to own this WEARABLE piece of "Ancient" Art! Great GIFT for a nature buff ~ enthusiast, camper, bookworm, coin collector, bird watcher or Addition to YOUR bird ~ animal silver, ring ~ jewelry collection! Perfect for a man or woman... child or adult.
Gender: Unisex, Age Group: Adult, Color: Silver, Size: Small/Medium
