Could be, but allways questionable in the case of such works.
It is not a known pattern of a mass produced period ring.
Is that plating or silver paint on top with unusual wear ?
For me I would pass .
Thanks guys! Well I wasn't gonna buy it; just curious.. I think it's plating, but what do I know...😃
To quote FB, "pfui"!
I know it's not a beauty... :-) Was just wondering if it stood a chance re originality: I'm learning, remember? ;-)
Mark, even with all the learning in the world, one photo is not enough to make a call. In the above case, this ring is so damn hokey would you even want it anyway? Furthermore, I have noticed all of a sudden recently that silver rings with gold highlight elements have appeared for sale whereas there have been exactly NONE over previous years. That enough is enough to cause me considerable suspicion whenever such a ring pops up for sale/discussion now.
Hi Glenn, purely academic interest, as it were. Learning material, you might say. Interesting... just learned something new! :-)
