This is a very sweet gold cased chalcedony embossed seal. The skillfully carved intaglio is inscribed with the words 'Forget Me Not' over an oval framed forget me not flower. This beautiful little tool would have been used in the Victorian era to stamp and personalise the wax seal on hand written letters. Little pieces like this steeped in history and sentiment and in such excellent original condition are becoming harder and harder to find - a real treasure.
