Stunning large and very fine Irish silver dish ring smothered in fantastic embossed and engraved decoration and fitted with a blue glass liner. The ring has a base decoration of scrolls and rambling flowers and vines interspersed with interesting characters including a seated musician playing a pipe, a goat, a cow and a shepherd holding a staff, also a finely engraved thatched cottage sitting in a meadow under the shade of a tree.
The fineness of the detail is just superb and it makes for a very interesting and fun piece beautiful for regular display. It also has a large vacant cartouche framed by scrolls.
