Impressed from a small ornate Victorian wheel wax seal (1837 - 1901)
It has 6 arms and each arm of the seal has a three sided rotating seal. A Victorian woman would choose one of the 18 seals, depending on her message or mood, to secure her correspondence with sealing wax.
More chains, charm catchers and swivel fobs are available here.
There is a tiny gold vermeil ship wax seal necklace available here.
Impressed with history!
