The two portraits stamped on the hoop of this silver ring commemorate the revolutionaries Jean-Paul Marat (1743–93) and Louis-Michel Lepeletier de St Fargeau (1760–93). They were both assassinated during the revolutionary upheavals of the 1790s. Marat was famously stabbed in his bath by Charlotte Corday in July 1793 and Lepeletier de St Fargeau was killed by a royalist named Philippe Nicholas Maris de Paris in January 1793 as a protest against his vote to behead the King, Louis XVI. These two figures were often commemorated together on jewellery as revolutionary martyrs on mass produced, often base metal jewellery made for Revolutionary supporters. This ring is made from gold and silver
