Vintage sterling mens ring from the 1930s. A bold and handsome deco piece, with blue black enamel and shoulders that read 19, 33. Center of the ring has an abstract looking rectangle with rounded edges. It appears there once was another piece soldered on top of this, now gone. 1933 was the first year of the Civilian Conservation Corp, and the first year of The Chicago Century of Progress Worlds Fair. I'm guessing this piece is most likely from one of these two, and I'm inclined toward the former from the thickness of the design, the quality of the enamel, and the way the piece appears to have been worn to work. An outstanding vintage mens ring for lovers of Art Deco, and the 30s.

The Civilian Conservation Corps was Roosevelt's work relief program in response to the Great Depression. It operated from 1933 - 1942, feeding, housing, and employing over 2.5 million men, planting over 3 billion trees, and creating over 800 state parks - earning the nickname "The Tree Army". This only scratches the surface of what the program covered. See the PBS American Experience documentary called "The Civilian Conservation Corps".
