Hand crafted from a small British antique Victorian desk wax seal, which dates back to 1837 - 1901.
More chains, charm catchers and swivel fobs are available here.
The last photos depict a small tired envelope dated 1844 with a red wax impression using the same seal. It's part of a personal collection belonging to a man named Winston, an avid philatelist from England, who acquired it not because of the amazing red wax seal but because he is a collector of postal history and studies postage stamps, postmarks, cancellations and so much more.
Impressed with history!
