Wax Seal Ring - "Such Is Life"

$70.00
About Details Inspiration
This hand-cast ring was modified from a much-used 19th-century Scottish wax seal. The original piece had multiple stamps with wonderfully cryptic sentiments and images, all appearing in mirror-image reverse.  This was so when the seal was pressed into hot wax, the text would be embossed legibly, right-side-around.  We added a ring base, making sure to leave lots of rustic detail intact to reference the object's utilitarian history.  Note that your ring's text will be backwards, just like the original artifact.
