This impressive antique Victorian armigerous signet ring has been crafted in 18ct yellow gold.

The shield shaped anterior face of the ring is embellished with chased decorated seal matrix (intaglio) depicting the MacKintosh* family crest, incorporating a lion rampant above the swagged family the motto 'Touch not the cat bot (without) a glove'.

The flared channelled ring shoulders blend almost seamlessly with the channelled 18ct yellow gold ring shank.

The interior of the shank is fully hallmarked with the 18 ct mark (18), the Birmingham Assay Office hallmark (anchor), the gold guarantee mark (crown) and date letter for 1894 (u).

NOTE *The MacKintosh clan was the head of an entire confederacy of clans around Inverness, Scotland. The whole of Clan Chattan depended on Clan MacKintosh for their protection, and so adopted their motto. This confederacy was (and to this day) called, "Clan Chattan." The MacKintosh were the primarly supporters of Robert Bruce I. For a millennia, the Bruces and MacKintoshes have been particularly loyal to one another. There's many other Surnames regarded as septs (sub-branches) of the MacKintosh clan, such as Keir-Mackintosh, Grey, Steele.
