Formed in silver precious metal clay from an antique horse intaglio wax seal this equestrian pendant is fired in our kiln and transformed into pure fine silver. Later once it cools, it is given a patina and tumbled and then polished by hand to gorgeous finish.

The wax seal horse pendant itself is roughly an inch in diameter and hung from an 18 inch oxidized sterling silver chain and clasp. Perfect piece for any horse lover.
____________________________________________________________________________

Each piece is made to order so please allow an additional 10 business days from the time you order for its creation.

Also each piece is hand crafted and will vary slightly in appearance but never in quality.

Necklace measures approximately 18 " (46 centimeters) and falls to the collarbone, meaning that you can comfortably wear it the whole day directly against the skin.

Our fine silver pendants are one of a kind made entirely by hand, not cast.

We hope you enjoy and have a most amiable day :)

Thank you for supporting Handmade!

The History of Wax Seals

The use of seals can be traced back to the world’s earliest civilizations.

The use of wax seals did not begin until the Middle Ages. Kings, clergy, and royal courts used them in issuing official decrees and authenticating documents. By the 13th century, the use of wax seals spread from aristocrats to the ordinary freemen. Each had their own seal, and in a time when many were illiterate, they were used in place of a signature to authenticate legal or personal documents.

The wax was pressed with a handheld stamp or with a signet ring bearing the owner’s crest or coat of arms. In fact, the kissing of a signet ring of a noble became customary as a sign of respect and allegiance. Later, monograms and novelty stamps featuring popular motifs (such as Aesop’s Fables) were used for personal correspondence and very in vogue during the Victorian era.

Though not of wax, collecting seals as Medallions also became fashionable for stops along the European Grand Tours of the 18th and 19th centuries, a tradition amongst the wealthy aristocracy. James Tassie, a Scottish engraver, reproduced many artistic works of antiquity in miniature, as well as portraitures of well-known people of his era and were highly collected.
