This charming antique Victorian 9ct gold wax seal Pencil with an Agate stone base weighs 5.01 grams and stands just over 6.5cm high. The seal is hallmarked 9C EB. The Agate base has not been carved, this could make a wonderful personalised gift idea. The lead holder tip section of the pencil is missing as seen in the pics.
Seals were engraved gold or other metal medallions used for marking a person's signature impression in sealing wax for important documents or other correspondence.
