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 is included with the seal.
This is a cut steel seal
It has an oval base with an intaglio of a shield with a castle and dove
The base is domed
The strut handle has a suspension loop
The seal measures 29mm x 22mm x 18mm
The seal is in 95% mint condition
