Hi there , out with Roman Ray on Friday and we both had a load of pre decimals ect. I came up with what i thought was a copper olive. That was until I cleaned it. There seems to be a Gold gilding and patterning on it. Showed it to my brother yesterday and he thinks maybe its a gas lamp control.

ps looking at the second pic would seem to show the ring shape has a flange inside.....It doesnt though thats a shadow.

Hi Rob, your brother could be right mate, but i'm with you on this one, looks very much like a ring to me fella, especially with the gilding, which can clearly be seen, nice find Rob, well done.

hi rob,

nice find, my observations are, smooth inside, a perfect circle shape, milled edge exterior,

i'm not convinced in your brothers suggestion - i'm happy to go with the idea of a ring, probably anytime from the industrial revolution -- so maybe victorian/edwardian.

take it along to a local jewellers and ask them for an opinion

cheers

Rob, there's a Carpenter's Arms in Maindee Newport, probably came from there many moons ago. It's a bit of a roughhouse now. Grin

Hate to be a kill joy but I think I would have to go with your brother on this one, It looks far to small even for a childs finger and gilding wouldn't last to long on a ring.

rob, the cricket picture is an early one - probably early 19 century. the clues for this is the shape of the bat - like an irish hurley, and the bowler is bowling underarm.

pictures fof cricket games from 1700s show this type of bat. the 3 wkts didn't come into being until 1774.

i haven't seen any like this before -- i would record it with FLO, before putting it on the jacket.

you may want to email the lords cricket museum to see if they know of anything similar!
