Ref  NW1   The King's Remembrancer

A superior example of a Georgian mourning ring, dated 1820. The substantial high carat gold ring has a hoop inscribed In memory of on a black enamel ground and the head of the ring is set with a locket compartment containing hair under crystal, within an old-cut diamond and black enamel surround and between diamond shoulders. It is inscribed to reverse : Edw. Taylor Esq. Ob. 11 Jan 1820 Aet 84 and further inscribed inside the shank for his wife : Eliza Taylor Ob. 17 Dec 1820 At 67. Edward Taylor was Deputy King's Remembrancer at the Exchequer, an ancient judicial post in the legal system of England and the quality of the ring befits his high ranking office. The Gentleman's Magazine [1820] records his obituary : At Marlborough buildings Bath, Edw. Taylor Esq. of the King's Remembrancer's Office, Exchequer, Temple. The ring is size R and 1/2 [US 8 and 7/8] and the head of the ring measures one inch by 1/2 an inch. Very fine quality, immaculate condition.
