A very well hand made Arts and Crafts ring which is attributed to Henry George Murphy. Murphy was born in Kent in 1884 and apprenticed to Henry Wilson in 1899. By 1906 he was teaching at the Royal College of Art and a few years later at the Central School of Arts and Crafts. In 1912 he started work as foreman for Emil Lettre in Berlin, sharing lodgings with Bernard Instone, but he was very unhappy there and only stayed for 6 weeks. In 1912 he opened his first workshop in London while continuing his association with Wilson and teaching. In 1928 he opened the Falcon Studio, running a large workshop and retail outlet. In 1932 he became head of Silversmithing at the Central School and four years later was made Principal. He died in 1939. This ring is very similar to a lot of his designs and is set with three oval cabochon moonstones and a central green cabochon stone.
