Mary Gage Arts and Crafts silver and carved Chinese jade Ring

on Jan 6, 2019 in archived

Matching the cuff bracelet that is also available in my store an American Arts and Crafts silver and jade ring by Mary Gage. Delicate lilypads with hand-chased veins and tiny little beading surround the antique Chinese carved bead that takes center stage here. A signature motif for Mary Gage, lilypads show up in her jewelry very often; in the ring I am presenting they have acquired a deep patina that renders them three-dimensional and evoke romantic images of tranquil, misty ponds. Simply beautiful…

 

Size/Weight: sz 6 (easily re-sizable by your jeweler); face is 3/4″ in diameter; ring has a 5/8″ rise; 6.1 grams

Hallmarks / Date: not signed (which is not unusual) but a Mary Gage piece with no doubt; the matching cuff bracelet is fully signed and I have uploaded photos of the two pieces together as well as of the bracelet’s signature; 1920s-40s

Condition: excellent vintage with deep patina (you can always buff it up a little), with no damage or repairs noted and nice color in the jade bead

 

 

SOLD – Thank you!
