French Wax Seal, Georgian Sedan Chair
Channel your inner Cyrano and sign off your letters in 17 century style, with a wax seal. We are offering some modern archetype symbols to represent you, take your pick for any occasion.
Pretend you're Jane Austen and going in style to a fabulous party. Illustrated here are two porteurs carrying the equivalent to the modern day taxi, circa 1750 - the sedan chair. We recommend this seal for the most sartorial invitations ..
These handmade seals are made by hand in France and not only are they attractive as objects, but they also create beautifully deep set embossed images.
We recommend hard Shellac based wax to use with for a more authentic and historical crisp and sharp finish, red preferably in our opinion.
There are many Youtube videos illustrating how to use wax seals - a spoon and tea light 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.
