GEORGES BRAQUE Gold Ring 1960's

It is signed, "Bijoux de Braque", which is the name Braque gave to his jewels, along with the numbers 28 LP 2901. Also on the ring are the initials H.L. for Heger de Loewenfeld, who executed Braque's designs in gold. The size is approximately 5 1/2; the weight 8.7 dwt.
