A good, wide memorial ring with an inscription inside “Willm (William) English died 28th Feb 1843 aged 63″. It contains ‘repoussé’ work – a common metal working technique, popular in the early 1800s, where malleable metal was hammered into intricate designs and patterns. In 1750, the rolling mill was invented and it eliminated the need to first hand hammer the metal into thin, uniform sheets.
