Victorian Galleon at Sea Wax Seal Fob

$1,100

This Georgian wax seal fob features a bicolor agate intaglio galleon ship at sea. The clever carver used the bands of color to delineate the sea and sky. It was meant to be pressed into hot wax to create a decorative seal for correspondence in the days before gummed envelopes.
