Patience... Hurry no man's cattle...... This seal features the image of a tortoise.... a notoriously slow animal. The Text around it states 'Hurry no man's cattle'. This was from a 19th century proverb that states 'Hurry no man's cattle, as you may come to have a donkey of your own'.... (In the 1800's teams of horses that drove a carriage or a barouche were referred to as 'cattle'.) This teaches us to have patience with someone, as one day we might require someone to be patient with us....... Be Patient, as you may be in need of patience yourself sometime...... This pendant was cast from an antique wax seal stamp from the 1800's. These were used to seal letters and correspondence and come in a huge variety of designs, mottos, sentiments, heraldry and proverbs... Size...... This pendant measures approx. 17mm in diameter. This size is only approximate though because each piece is made individually by hand and may vary slightly. Options....... Please choose from the drop down menu how you would like your charm: on it's own, with a chain of various lengths Shipping times........ This will be ready to ship within 3 days...... usually much sooner though! In my experience parcels will arrive between 3 and 14 days, depending where in the world you are! Your purchase will be beautifully packaged and will come with a professionally printed explanation card explaining about the seal etc..... Why buy from SWALK?....... ☆ Every piece made by SWALK jewellery is made individually by hand. It is not cast or shuttled off a machine or 'assembled'. ☆ Each piece and every metal component is solid sterling silver. Sterling silver had been the first choice of metal artists for centuries as it has just the right balance of copper (.75) and silver (.925) to make it durable, hard wearing, and long lasting ☆ Every link is securely soldered for security and safety so you don't loose your piece ☆ Customer service is highly prioritised here at SWALK.... so if anything goes wrong, your piece isn't as you imagined, or for any reason you want to return it.. that's 'A OKAY' with me! ********************************************************************** Wax Seal Jewelry...... Each piece offered for sale is an imprint or cast of an antique wax seal from my personal collection. I use 100% sterling silver as this has the strength and durability needed for a piece of jewelry that is to be worn for years. All the jumps rings, clasps etc, are also sterling silver and each part is soldered, also for strength and durability. My intention is to make a piece that could become an heirloom too and for it to last generations. Each piece is individually handmade and therefore no two pieces will be exactly the same, they will however be extremely similar. The mark of the maker has been purposely left on the casts. The signs of age, cracks and tool marks all add to the charm of the piece and are an intentional feature.
