Finger ring decorated with entwined beasts and cat-like heads (ring)


Rings of this period are rare in Britain and very few have this incredible level of decoration. On each corner is cat-like head with large, almost bat-shaped ears. Between each pair of masks there are two intertwined beasts.

The ring is small, less than 20mm in diameter, and so was probably worn by a small woman or child.

This object is not on display.
