Historical significance: An almost identical ring in the possession of Corpus Christi College, belonged to the founder, Richard Foxe, Bishop of Rochester (d.1528). It is possible therefore, that this is a standard signet of the Bishops of Winchester.
Gold signet ring with an octagonal bezel engraved with a pelican in its piety, with behind, 'TS' in monogram, made in England, about 1500-50.
