An unusual 15ct gold ring that was made circa 1820. It has been set with a rectangular piece of moss agate that has been finely carved with a detailed intaglio of Dionysus, the Greek God of wine. He is holding a wand (thyrsus) of giant fennel covered with vine leaves and topped with a pine cone. Most of the wand is hidden as you can only see the top. The open work shoulders have a scallop shell on either side. It is a little work of art.
