Patience... Hurry no man's cattle...... T

his 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.
