ROMAN BRONZE INTAGLIO RING WITH CLASPED HANDS

Lot 0183 Details

Description
100-300 AD, Roman. Bronze ring with a D-Shaped hoop, and an oval-shaped red intaglio with 'dextrarum iunctio' ('joining together of the right hands') motif. In the fine arts, this motif is the representation of two people offering each other their right hand and is symbol of union and marriage, perhaps indicating that this item was a Roman wedding ring. Superb condition, wearable. Size: D: 15.27mm / US: 4 1/2 / UK: I1/2; 2.5g; Provenance: From an old London collection formed in the 1990s.
