Antique Georgian Armorial Seal, Carnelian and 18k Gold c. 1820

Since before the Bronze age people have been using seals to make an impression (usually in wax, on paper or in clay). This Georgian seal certainly makes an impression of it's own. 

The hand carved rich burnt orange colored Carnelian is carved with a Heraldic coat of arms showcasing a field of crows under a crow on a stump. Often referred to as a armorial seal, because it would likely have been used to signify the house, or name, of the user, this fantastic and large seal is set into an 18 karat gold mounting that is reposed with a floral motif. The seal measures 1 1/8 inches across and 1 1/4 inches high. It is in wonderful condition, especially considering that it was made in the Georgian era, sometime around 1820. It weighs 14.2 grams.
