Hope and Joy... a fistful of flowers wax seal necklace pendant.
"Where flowers bloom, so does hope." ~ Lady Bird Johnson
- description -
A hand holding a posy of flowers, or nosegay, that appears to be growing out of the solid ground of rocks. This is sitting above a wreath, or torse, with its typical six twists all within an escutcheon shield.
- symbolism -
In heraldry, the hand symbolizes a pledge of faith, sincerity and justice and the flowers symbolize hope and joy!
Hand cast from a steel block seal dating back to Victorian times (1837 - 1901). The original wax seal was engraved for P.W. Flowers and is stored in a little wooden treen box with his surname on it. I've included this in a photo.
