Iron with raised large rectangular projection, transversely keyed to allow operation of a lock mechanism. Size 5 for the small finger. These rings were made to operate the locks on jewelry boxes and wearing such rings was a status symbol, implying that the wearer owned such a box. Accordingly, some were made and worn, when no jewelry box existed. Stable excavated condition.
