Long life and success to the farmer!  GOD SPEED THE plough, or plow!  A wonderful well wishing gift for a farmer that provides for you!

- description -
A farmers plough, or plow, under the words GOD SPEED THE plough (picture) - a rebus wax seal in which the message is conveyed by words and pictures. 
God Speed is an expression of good wishes and here it is in reference to a farmers toast for long life and success to the farmer.  There are many English versions of the Farmers Arms poem and song that describes the farmers pride and good feelings of independence and productivity, whether providing for their own families or for others.
