Unusual Ring Charles Horner

Just purchased this ring which is Hallmarked

Band is marked 7 C.H (maker) Lion (for sterling silver) Chester(assay office) Letter N (year date for 1896)

Ring is Size 7 (US) N/O(British)

Band has a couple of kinks in it and 2 noticeable soldering points between the band and face.

Ive never seen anything like this, is it typical of Charles Horner or does anyone have any ideas or further information on this kind of ring.
