Bequest of David P. Harris ('46), 2020
From the collector's records: "The oval bezel shoes the Annunciation, with Mary seated on the left and Gabriel on the right. Between the two is what appears to be a representation of the descending Dove. The reversal of the two figures suggests that the ring was designed as a seal. The ring has a very slender hoop. It is probably from Turkey."
Purchased from Tetragon, London, in 1992.
