Fabulous and pristine antique French sceau, sealing wax seal, with long elegantly carved agate handle and a matrix set with an armorial crest and topped with a knight's helmet, 3 feathers. A top of the line piece from my own collection, this.
Very good to excellent condition throughout. The agate is superb, undamaged, not even a nick to the crisply cut edges. Bulbous end, 1" in width, facet-cut - great weight to it, and it's just a hair under 4" long (3 5/8"). I'll hate to see this one go from my collection. But it's time to downsize myself a bit more.
