Antique French Sterling Silver Wax Seal, Sceau, R P Monogram - or P R - BIG and bold, beautiful!
In honor of Father's Day, and the fact that this fabulous antique seal has my own father's initials ( R. P. ), I am reluctantly offering this fabulous wax seal. I'm tempted to keep it, but in fact, my Dad is more likely to fish or hunt than he is to write a letter, and he would not be caught dead using a prissy French seal to 'elevate' his epistle. Nope, this is just NOT my Dad! But here it is for whomever else might have R P or P R as their own monogram, and who loves this kind of thing like I do. This is a huge and heavy French .800/1000 purity silver seal that is as beautifully modeled as the fine old French flatware sets we love and offer, and is truly a work of art. The extra large size of it is solid and opulent in the hand. The matrix is extra large, makes a fabulous imprint! I can see this on someone's wedding announcements envelopes, can't you? Imprinted in red or perhaps gold sealing wax. Or your thank you notes and intimate correspondence cards. You know you really can't just use email for everything.
Very good to excellent condition. I see nothing at all to report that would diminish either your enjoyment of this or its value. It is a hefty 46.3 grams.
