A very nice piece of scrimshaw featuring an artist's rendition of a carved flower in an elongated oval shape. The ring is made up of sterling silver and frames it wonderfully. Beautiful patina to both the metal and the design.
The ring is a size 6. It is 1 3/16" long, 5/8" across. The carving is 7/8" x 5/16". Marked sterling. Notice the shape of the band and is thicker along the bottom. Well made and has not worn down over time.
Excellent vintage condition.
A lovely piece for your collection.
