Love findeth the way.
This is an impression of an antique wax letter seal. It dates from the 1700's and would have been used to seal letters and correspondence.
This seal was made by William Tassie in the 1700’s and features an image of Cupid (love) on rough seas. He’s using his quiver as a boat and his Arrow as a mast. It features in ‘a catalogue of Mr Williams Tassie’s extensive collection of Impressions from engraved gems.’ It is number 1475 and is described as ‘L’Amour trouve moyen’ or Love findeth the way.
This seal measures 22mm across and 30mm in length including the bail (this may change slightly as each piece is individually made by hand)
This Seal is pictured with a 1.4mm sterling chain, the amulet looks great on a heavier longer chain too. These can be found in my shop here: https://www.etsy.com/ie/shop/SWALKDESIGNS?ref=seller-platform-mcnav§ion_id=17589720
The pendant was cast in 100% sterling silver and has a nice weight for it's size. It has been oxidized to highlight the details in the antique design and hand polished for a aged patina.
Please choose from the drop down menu how you would like your charm: on it's own, or with a chain of various lengths
