This item is carved of common cow gone, straight striations visible. The item is an early 1800s French hand carved dog, whippet, as handle to a sealing wax "sceau" or seal that appears to have the monogram either C and M overlain (CM or MC) and is beautifully styled, in fine condition. From my own collection, it's time to begin to downsize. One of my personal favorites!

Very good to excellent without any damage to the carved hound, dog, which I believe is a slender Whippet. His eyes remain, original, a collar carved and he's mounted upon a deeply engraved round matrix that prints out an overlay of the letters C and M, could be either monogram. Dore bronze with a black metal interior makes up the old matrix. I am unsure how old this one is, possibly 1700s.
