According to the Braybrooke catalogue, 'The surface is covered with various patterns, among which a heart is conspicuous, the rest appear to be leaves of flowers probably forget-me-nots; but among these I fancy I can trace a cross and a double X or two C's. This ring was obtained with preceding, but the date may not be qute so old'. The preceding ring no 187 was 'bought of Mr Warren, of Ixworth, Suffolk, by William Fuller Maitland, Esq., by whom it was presented to me, March 14th, 1857'. Mr Warren was Joseph Warren.
