Funds needed to keep 17th century ring on display in Middlewich
A FUNDRAISING mission has been launched to keep a relic from Middlewich’s history in the town. Kerry Fletcher, Middlewich Town Council’s heritage officer, is asking for the support of Guardian readers so that a rare 17th century ring can be put on permanent display. The gold ‘mourning’ ring has an inscription on it which says ‘Death is the waye to life’ and was classified as treasure at an inquest in Crewe.
It matched two rings in the British Museum with the makers’ mark ‘TS’, dated 1658 and 1669.
