Georgian cut steel seal with Intaglio c1750

Code: 9.272

RESERVED

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 lions

The base is slightly domed with a smooth plain finish

The strut handle has a suspension loop

The seal measures 25mm x 18mm x 15mm

The seal is in 90% mint condition – light rubbing to the intaglio
