Antique 1920s Art Deco Birk's 14K onyx and gold leaf Phoenix signet ring

A fabulous 1920s onyx and gold leaf signet ring with a bird motif from the celebrated "Maison Birks" of Canada. Birds was founded in Montreal in 1879 and grew to open shops across Canada through the early 1900s. In a vintage postcard from the 1920s (last photo!) you can see a colorized interior view of their Toronto location. Perhaps this ring was inside one of those cases?! 14K yellow gold with an oval onyx face and a bird and nest - or perhaps Phoenix rising from the ashes? - motif. Inscribed inside "J.M. - L.B. 6.6.23." A century-old token of affection. Marvelous condition.

Measurements: Size 3 1/4 US, 4.6 grams
Era: 1920s
Markings: "Birk's 14K" and personal inscription
