Victorian 10K Yellow Gold Embossed Baby Band Ring. Made by Ostby Barton, this band features a beautiful embossed pattern of dainty flowers. Incredibly, this sweet little baby ring remains in its original gift card and comes with the shipping envelope complete with 1 cent postage mark and a card stating "This is a real Gold Ring made of 10 Karat Natural Gold, conforming to the National Stamping Act." The Act was passed in 1906 and I believe the ring was made 1906-1910.
The ring is marked 10K OB and is in perfectly preserved condition.
