For your consideration is a c1780 Georgian ring with two hand painted portraits on porcelain cabochons. The ring is crafted in the Georgian style. One of the porcelain cabochon plaques features a woman, the other a man in European dress. The porcelains may have been a Chinese export to Europe. The clear porcelain glaze with small bubbles looks to be porcelain produced in China during the Qianlong (1736 – 1795) reign of the Qing Dynasty. The woman’s side looks to be signed with what could be the surname Shan in Chinese. There are some small losses to the paint as shown. The original patina has been left on the ring. The ring is a size 6.25 and weighs 3.3 grams. The ring is unmarked and gold content was verified by x-ray fluorescence (Thermo Niton Model XL3t 900S) as 61.75% Au; 11.24% Ag; 24.5% Cu. Just acquired from the estate of a Harford County, Maryland horse farm.
