Item Details
Description
MOSHEH OVED: SILVER LAMB RING
Of hammered finish, the band forming its front and back legs and tail, unsigned, ring size approx. N

Footnotes:

Mosheh Oved (1885-1958), the charismatic owner of Bloomsbury antique shop, Cameo Corner, was an authority on cameos, antique watches and clocks as well as being a writer, sculptor and poet. Whilst sheltering in the basement of Cameo Corner during the blitz, he modelled the first of his animal ring designs out of wax - a lamb on wobbly legs - in order to steady his trembling hands. Later he would add many more animals to his menagerie of rings in both gold and silver.
