Moroccan, Old Enamelled Silver Ring.

 

 A characterful old Moroccan Silver Ring, a fairly broad grooved band with a circular disc, fine twisted silver wire filigree seperates "cloisonnes" of green and yellow enamels. These enamels have chipped and flaked with repeated knocks over time leaving only traces of dark yellowy gold  and lime green enamel.

From the "ante Atlas" region of Southern Morocco.

It's quite knocked around but still "intact" and thankfully showing its age well, check the close up of the band for the fine marks in the silver and then have a look at the very knocked "bezel" and the scratched surface of the translucent glass "stone".

The broad (8 mm) band has worn wire "squiggle" decoration and would fit a finger about Size "V" (US 10.5)

The silver has a relaxed grey patina. I think it's perfect as it is and would be wearing it if it fitted me. However a careful polish with a dry Silver Polishing Cloth when you think it needs it will remove a lot of its age but will also reveal the brilliance of its detail in the process.

Just what you'd want in an old Moroccan ring, see also MR100, MR101, MR103 or just search "Moroccan" to see pendants too.

Age: Mid 20th Century.
