This item is a rare survivor. It is a cardboard box labelled “Rajah Red Sealing Wax”. When opened, it is nearly full of sticks of red sealing wax with most of the original packing paper still intact. This is a most interesting item as is and could be included in a set of writing tools or one could use the sealing wax to be placed in a specific wax holder. It is rare to find this original material as proof of its use in the early 19th century through the Victorian era. It was melted and placed on the closure of an envelope and an individualised seal pressed into it to close and personalise the correspondence. The condition is excellent for age and complete apart from a half of one stick of wax. Please note the weight as this may increase shipping costs. 8.25 ins (21cm) x 2 ins (5cm) x 1.5 ins (3.5cm). Weight 492 grams. This item appears in my book, “Antique Boxes, Inside and Out” on page 346. Insured Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $50.00 USD - with no tracking is cheaper.
