Late Victorian Era Signet Ring with Native American Figure in 10k Gold

A dainty, late-Victorian era signet ring, made in 10k rose gold, with finely-detailed, carved shoulders that depict a Native American man in a feather headdress, or war bonnet. This figure sits atop a hammered field, giving the ring a subtle Arts & Crafts flair; he wears a stoic expression and holds an arrow and a feather (crossed) over his breast. The ring's oval face is hand-engraved with the monogram EL, in curling period script. This style of ladies signet ring was very popular during the late 1800s through the early 1900s— the shoulders of these rings are usually ornate, but they rarely feature human figures. This Native American imagery is special and very scarce. The monogram is crisp, and the shoulders are well-preserved, aside from the rubbed noses of the subject.
