Ref  RD2   18th Century Urn Mourning Ring

Fine quality, understated 18th century urn memorial ring, dated 1771. The simple gold hoop supports a head set with a carved agate urn within a surround of garnets in foiled and closed back settings. The gem engraver has chosen an agate which highlights the brown urn against a contrasting mottled  ground, all carved from one piece of agate. The ring is inscribed to reverse : W. Withers Cl'k Died January 1771 Aged 56. Reverend William Withers was a Fellow of Christ's College, Cambridge who became Rector of Tankersley under the patronage of Charles, Marquis of Rockingham. Cl'k refers to the position of Chapel Clerk. The ring is size K and 1/2 [US 5 and 3/8] and the head of the ring measures 1/2 an inch by 2/3 of an inch. Immaculate.
