"LE PETIT PROTECTOR" on the underside along with wreath pattern.
This example is accompanied by a French fit leatherette case with lid escutcheon engraved "LE PETIT / PROTECTOR" around a star motif.

CONDITION:Very fine overall. Ring retains the majority of its brilliant blue with light wear and some freckling. Band has some mild patina spots as well but is otherwise fine. Case has some mild edgewear from storage and display, displaying very well. A wonderful, beautifully made curiosa.
