Vintage Intaglio Ring Roman Centurion Greek Warrior ESPO Sz 7
An ancient Greek warrior or Roman centurion is depicted on this vintage intaglio ring of carved carnelian and electroplated gold by Joseph Esposito, circa 1980s/90s.
The well made ring has a matte gold toned band and is set with a carved oval shaped Hellenic or Roman Revival carnelian intaglio, featuring a soldier in profile wearing a helmet with stylized feather plume – flanked by two black glass cabs.
The face of the ring measures approximately 5/8 of an inch high and the shank measures a size 7 on my ring mandrel. It weighs 8.2 grams and is stamped “14KT. GE. ESPO”.
