Square Filigree Initial Wax Seal Kit - J
Tracing all the way back to the Middle Ages, wax seals have always served as a stamp of authority and authenticity as well as a visual signature in a time when many people were not able to read.
Seals ensured that the contents of an envelope were secure, protecting the importance or secrecy of the document. Additionally, it was common practice to destroy a person's seal once the owner died, hence the reason why so few original seals survive today.
Today wax seals are used in the traditional way for letters and invitations but also in a number of creative applications such as product packaging and in card making and scrapbooking.
Our solid brass seals are hand crafted in Florence, Italy.
Each brass seal set comes beautifully packaged in a git box with one seal stamp and one wax stick (colours may vary from photos); the seal stamp measures roughly 1.9 x 1.9 cm (0.75 x 0.75 inches)
