An unusual large silver French desk seal.

 

This wonderfully decorated seal has an ornate crest engaved into the end with a motto RECTE VELLE CERTE POSSE (MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE)

 

The seal is beautifully made with stylised floral leaf designs to each side typical of the late 19th Century. It is in great condition - there is a minor dent to one side but there are no cracks or splits in the silver.

 

The seal is French marked for high grade (950) silver and has an indistinct unknown makers mark. 

 

Era: Victorian, 1837 - 1901

Measurements: Seal is 8.2 cm in length, 3.4 cm at widest point

It weighs 95 grams (we assume the seal is part 'loaded' with oroginal shellac typical of the era.)

Hallmarks: Stamped with Minerva's Head and French silver mark 950 grade
