14ct Gold Signet Ring With Carnelian Intaglio of Two Swans & A Bear



A large 14ct gold signet ring set with a carved intaglio in carnelian. It has an interesting shank with intertwined ivy leaves in the gold work. The intaglio is a bear within a shield and above is a helmet with two swans on either side and an anthemion or palmette above that. It is most likely a German family crest. It was made circa 1880.
