A large, carved coral ring of a classical lady with vine leaves in her hair. She is probably Ariadne, the Goddess of wine. The carving dates from around 1800-1820 and is called the Neo-Classical period. Travellers on the Grand Tour bought souvenirs in such places as Naples in Italy where a lot of the coral was sourced and carved it to intricate items to tempt the tourist. It is mounted in an 18ct gold frame and shank.
