About this item
This is seal was designed to be used with hot wax for sealing letters.
I have made an impression of this seal using hot wax to show that the seal works as intended and also to give a clearer image of the intaglio.
The wax impression comes in a small plastic case and are included with the seal.
This is a small solid gold seal – the seal has no assay marks but has been tested and is sold as solid 15K gold
The seal has an oval shaped base set with a red stone and carved with an intaglio of a Squirrel
The domed base is decorated with carving and is topped with a carved suspension loop with a small finial
The seal measures 19mm x 11mm x 9mm
The seal is in 85% mint condition – light wear and there looks to be an old repair on the stem.
