This is for an extremely rare Victorian glass block seal holder. I have never seen one like it before, i have had many of the lovely seal wheels with inset intaglios that spin wound on a wheel, but this is an actual desk seal designed to hold little glass block seals, such as the two it comes with. The seal is very ornate with flowers mounted above the holder and a lovely cut Amethyst crystal on top. The little key on the side tightens onto the glass block seals to hold them in place for use. The two seals it comes with are a clear one with a flower and the French phrase ' So I to thee' and and an orange one that shows a handshake and the Latin phrase 'Amicitia in aeternum' ....Friends forever. It is in excellent condition, there are no missing pieces of decoration on the gilded areas, no cracks to the amethyst and nice crisp clear block seals, thee are a couple of minuscule fleabites on the edge of the myths and the very light overall wear you see in the pics...its very clean, its survived really well and it displays beautifully. It measures 54mm tall.
