I tried to get a good picture of the bird but the lighting was not on my side. The bird looks like a duck with its wings up. The seal is made of gorgeous Scottish agate and the seal itself is bezeled with ornate hand chased silver. The handle is 8 sided. There are no hallmarks but guaranteed silver. The seal is 53 mm long by 9 mm wide. There are a couple of flea bites to the handle but nothing serious. English in origin and C. 1860.
