This ring was acquired by the Museum in 1871 as part of a large collection of rings which had been assembled by the Victorian scholar Edmund Waterton. It was described at that time as 17th century from south Germany.

Physical description

Gilded bronze ring with a circular bezel enamelled with a monogram of the letters TAV in blue on a pale ground with a border of black cells. The shank has split shoulders and a raised spine which is interrupted in three places, in the centre of the back and at the base of each split, with imitation binding. The raised spine runs across the centre of each split to help support the bezel.
