Late 18th Century Agate...
A beautifully designed, historic Bishop’s ring consisting of blended metals. Great craftsmanship throughout the ring, decorated on all four sides with high relief designs. The engraved lid hinges to reveal a secret compartment at the top, (often termed a Poison Ring) which is lined with red velvet.. This papal ring weighs approximately 78grams and is 1.25inches wide and long, with a height of 2 inches. This historically fascinating antique would make a very special gift or a nice addition to any collection.
