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 gold seal which has a solid gold handle, gold on metal base and a gold suspension loop. The seal has no assay marks but is 15K – 18K and is sold with our 100% guarantee to that effect.

This is a lovely piece in the Empire style with a carved base set with a beautiful amethyst stone. 

This is carved with an image of a bee pollinating flower with the words "Industry Purity"

The seal has a strut handle and a suspension looped topped with a small finial

The seal measures 22mm x 15mm x 13mm and is in 90% crisp mint condition – some light wear on the base where the gold on metal has rubbed slightly and metal is showing in small patches
