Georgian House Fly Wax Seal Fob

$1,100

A Georgian wax seal fob modeled in gold and set with a rock crystal intaglio of a fly. Fobs such as this one were designed to be impressed onto a dollop of hot wax to form a decorative seal on correspondence. They sometimes feature a family crest, monogram or rebus, but a house fly? Very unusual.
