    About this item

    This is a Georgian gilt seal set with a green bloodstone stone which has a coded message. These fun seals were used by the Georgians when writing letters as a little nod or wink to the comings and goings of the recipient and tended to be tongue in cheek and a bit gossipy & confuse anyone who wasn’t in on the joke.

    This seal has a green blood tone engraved with the pictures and words “Ear (hear) eye (I) Il se faire” – hear I shall make it happen or hear I shall make it work

    The seal is decorated with carved detailing and a detailed image of a stag. The combination of the phrase and Stag suggest a more illicit meaning than just gossip!

    The seal has an original rope twist Georgian suspension loop

    The seal measures 21mm x 15mm  x 12mmand is in 95% mint condition
