"The Wedding Ring of England: The Legend of the Ring of Edward the Confessor."
This is an original 1911 color with gold ink photolithograph of a painting by Cyrus Cuneo that portrays St. John the Evangelist giving back the ring that King Edward the Confessor of England had given to him when Saint John was disguised as an elderly beggar, to a pair of English pilgrims lost in Palestine. The sapphire of the ring is now set in the cross above the state crown.
