Seller: Top-Rated Seller flikmywick (32,506) 99.9%, Location: Bromyard, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 233025751627 Here we have a nice old late Georgian / early Victorian wax writing seal impression in vivid red sealing wax dating from the early to mid 1800s. It is complete in its original round rosewood treen box with engravers label to the underside of the lid. These seal boxes were given out by the engravers when a seal was purchased, the theory being that these little impressions would be passed around amongst the customers friends and thus the delicate and fine work of the engraver would be showcased, that is why there would always have been an advertisement in the lid. Few survive with labels intact, they are lovely tactile little pieces and the boxes themselves are very finely made. This one shows the bust of Joseph Mallaby who was clerk to the Birkenhead commissioners, and is advertising the engravers Hay of Finsbury Terrace - London. The box measures 50mm in diameter and the box, seal and label are all in very good condition with only the light wear you see.
