Breechloading+ Revolvering Matschlock

A 15th century Burgundian gold signet ring   The octagonal bezel engraved with a fleur-de-lys in the centre with the initial M above in Lombardic script, with indistinct motto below within a pearled border, the shoulders engraved with a black letter inscription in old French tout e loial (always loyal) with star and floral divisions, the channelled shoulders with foliate sprig decoration, circa 1470

late gold signet ring -- described by Christie's as "Burgundian" [so much sexier -- and thus more valuable than "English" -- which it could certainly be!] with disappointingly pedestrian legend "toute loial"
