Georgian “Beware” Wax Seal Necklace

$1,800

This Georgian wax seal fob features a bloodstone intaglio of a mouse creeping toward a trap beneath the word "Beware." A cautionary message that was meant to be pressed into hot wax to create a decorative seal for correspondence in the days before gummed envelopes.
