Use this wax seal to add a special finishing touch to important documents or envelopes. This is a seal for making impressions on sealing wax of the Scales of Justice, traditionally a symbol of the legal profession, so it makes a unique gift for a lawyer. It's also the Zodiac sign for Libra (September 23 - October 22).
Before self-adhesive envelopes were invented, everyone used a seal of some kind to keep messages private. In our present day of emails and instant messaging, taking the time to write a letter makes a message stand out as important, worth taking the time to think carefully and spend money on paper, ink, wax, postage, etc. A wax seal makes certain that your letter is noticed among the junk mail.
This product is the metal stamp for making impressions on sealing wax. I'm particularly proud of the details in this one - it takes advantage of the depth variation possible thanks to 3D printing, so the pans on the scale literally pop out at you. The impression will be about 3/4" in diameter.
The top of the handle is marked to make it much easier to align the impression and avoid setting it upside down or crooked.
