From the McTeigue website: Founded in New York in 1895, the Walter P. McTeigue & Company designed and manufactured fine handmade precious jewelry and was a highly regarded behind the scene jeweler to the trade throughout the 20th century. Among their customers were the country’s finest retailers including Tiffany & Company, J.E. Caldwell, C.D. Peacock, Black, Starr & Frost and Shreve, Crump & Low.
The ring weighs 7.9 grams and is a size 6. Complimentary sizing for a perfect fit is a service I offer.
Good condition. There is some minor facet junction abrasion, and one corner of the middle stone is chipped. This is condition that is typical for a ring that was worn often, and is nearly 75 years old.
