£20.00

Channel your inner Cyrano and sign off your letters in 17th century style with a wax seal. We are offering some modern archetype symbols to represent you; take your pick for any occasion. Are you in a glorious and exalted mood? Borrow Napoleon's eagled-crested seal for a minute...

These handmade seals are made in France and not only are they attractive as objects, but they also create beautifully deep-set embossed images. We recommend using hard, Shellac-based wax for a more authentic, historical and crisp, sharp finish which can be purchased in a range of subtle tones here.

There are many Youtube videos illustrating how to use sealing wax - a spoon and spirit burner are essential accessories. This should always done with care (and by adults only) as the wax can get very hot and should not be handled directly.
