VictorianSignet Ringwith Concealed Coffer Key

$2,500

This incredible rare Victorian signet seal ring holds a key that discreetly tucks under the head of the ring. The key would have opened a coffer - aka a small box - used to hold jewelry, money, or other valuables. The face of the ring features a bird's head (most likely a heron) emerging from a ducal coronet - possibly the Knowler heraldic crest.
