Ref  CD3  Micro-ivory Ring

A rare microscopic ivory carving set to a ring, circa 1780 - 1800. The gold ring contains a scene with figures in a woodland landscape, carved in minute detail, in the style typical of Dieppe ivory work. The carving is on a cobalt blue glass ground, under a domed crystal and within a surround of natural pearls. The ring is size L and 1/2 [US 5 and 7/8] and the head of the ring measures 3/4 of an inch by 2/3 of an inch. Finely detailed micro-ivory carving in immaculate condition, unable ever to be replicated. Micro-ivory carvings are so difficult to find and one in an original ring is extremely rare.
