Antique Arts & Crafts Dragons Breath Silver Ring
A beautiful ring from the Arts & Crafts period, dating to the early 20th Century. The ring is made from sterling silver and is marked on the back with 'sterling'. It has a beautiful decorative design in the silver and a lovely elongated dragons breath stone at the centre. Dragons breath is made from glass that has had molten metal melted into it. It creates a slightly opal appearance and is orange with undertones of purple. This is a truly lovely example and looks wonderful on the hand.
