A gold armorial ring thought to date from 1640-80 discovered by a metal-detectorist on the shores of Loch Lomond in Scotland - estimated at £8000-12,000 at Dix Noonan Webb.

A gold armorial ring discovered by a metal-detectorist on the shores of Loch Lomond in Scotland last year will be offered in the Dix Noonan Webb auction on September 10.

The finder declared the ring as Scottish Treasure Trove to the National Museum of Scotland but was told this June that the museum did not want to purchase it. She consigned it to the Mayfair auction house.

DNW’s further research revealed that the crest belonged to the Colman family of Brent Eleigh, Suffolk. The family used the coat of arms depicted on the bezel of the ring from 1598. This ring itself is thought to date from 1640-80 and it is estimated at £8000-12,000.

The high-quality consignment – described by Luke Macdonald, director at Cheffins, as “one of our flagship sales of the year” – includes paintings, furniture, Chinese ceramics, decorative items and carpets.

5. Four 13th century French enamel bowls

Four medieval gemellions will be sold at Stroud Auctions on September 11-13, each with a guide price of £2000-4000. These 13th century French copper and champlevé enamel bowls, almost certainly from Limoges, were used as part of the ceremonial washing of hands at the medieval dinner table.

The name comes from the Latin word gemellio meaning twin, and the bowls were used in pairs – one having a small spout from which water would be poured (such as that pictured), with the second used as the receptacle. Each 9in (23cm) bowl has contrasting decoration, including heraldic shields, hunting scenes and dancing women.

The local vendor was unaware what the items were although they had been in the family for many years.
