Ring with a flintlock, anonymous, 1650 - 1670

steel (alloy), d 2.7cm × w 6.0kg More details

This ring has a tiny, finely finished flintlock clamped between two pieces of rock crystal. Its function is unknown. The piece was probably made for a member of the Stadtholder’s family. It may have originally been fitted with a small barrel, which would have made it possible to shoot with the ring.
