Exotic Cockatrice Ring

Exotic Cockatrice Ring

Gold Synthetic Ruby

D  1.90cm (0.75 in)

Origin French, c. 1900
Case Ring Case

Art Nouveau Ring

Literature
A depiction of a pair of Cockatrices fighting over a ruby 'egg'. Perhaps a visual pun on two admirers fighting over the same woman 'She's a ruby'. A very stylish design contemporary with, & with echoes of Laliques serpent pendant in the Hermitage. Unfortunately the maker's mark has been lost in sizing the ring in the past.
