Carnelian intaglio ring, carved with a gryllos, a fantastical figure that's half man, half animal. This particular fellow has a large human head in the center, a long horse neck and head sprouting out of the human head, and chicken legs and feet! The setting is late 18th, early 19th century; the intaglio may be of ancient date; the 14k shank may be Victorian. Good condition. Size 8 ¾.
