Ref  SL2   Moshe Oved Taurus Ring

A Moshe Oved silver figural ring modelled as a stylised bull, circa 1940's. Moshe Oved [1885 - 1958], a Polish-Jewish émigré, was the charismatic owner of the Bloomsbury antique shop, Cameo Corner. Oved's reputation for selling rare and unusual jewellery attracted a rich, royal and colourful clientele which included Queen Mary and Rudolph Valentino. Oved was a striking character dressed in a purple velvet robe and wearing an imposing amethyst pendant. He was an authority on cameos as well as a poet, writer and sculptor. During the war whilst sheltering in the basement of the shop during the Blitz, he first began modelling rings to steady his trembling hands. His unique anthropomorphic jewellery is highly sought after today - a charming menagerie of animals and birds displaying human characteristics. This Oved Taurus ring is size L [US 5 and 1/2]  and is 1 and 1/8 inches tall. It was purchased by its former owner many years ago from Editions Graphiques, London. Absolutely charming, rare, immaculate.
