This French, late nineteenth century banded agate desk seal has a base of 800-900 silver quality (tested).
It is 2½” (6.5cms) tall and 3/4” (1.9cms) across the top. It weighs 16.8 grams.
The top of the seal is very elegantly carved from a piece of translucent white agate with orange banding. It is quite the most attractive I have ever seen. The silver base is prettily decorated. The base is inscribed with the intials ‘JH’.
This most exquisite seal would make a wonderful addition to a collection, It is in excellent condition and will arrive in a gift box.
