Plain cast copper alloy finger ring. The join is visible but there is no inscription.

The ring dates to the eighteenth century and may have been worn by a child or a teenager - the size of this ring suggests this to be the case - as by this time most adults were able to afford gold or silver. Plain hoops were often preferred.
