Victorian William & Rebecca Perrott Mourning Ring


William Perrott died on October 18th, 1869. He was 63 years old. Almost exactly one year later, his wife Rebecca followed him into the great beyond. She was 64. Someone who loved them both commissioned this "IN MEMORY OF" ring with teeny tiny script inside telling us the -partial- story of this married couple. The typography is exquisite: Neo-gothic / Renaissance vibes.
