Georgian Bloodstone Dove Intaglio Seal Fob

$800

This Georgian wax seal fob with a pretty bow at the neck features a bloodstone intaglio dove in flight. Or is it a messenger pigeon? It was meant to be pressed into hot wax to create a decorative seal for correspondence in the days before gummed envelopes.
