Vintage wax stamp, brass on genuine Baltic amber, initials S L

One of the things I always loved to get was a genuine, handwritten letter.
Envelope handpicked, paper of good quality, maybe perfumed, lock of hair of dried flower added to the letter, and to top this off a wax seal...
So romantic, and so very much out of date...

Here you have one of the remnants of that time: a brass stamp with the initials S.L. in cursive, beautiful script carved in, attached to a band adorned with flowers, with a handle of genuine amber. It is something picked up from the Baltics, where I always look for my amber (See also my amber shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop/HeymesBalticAmber).

It is a beautiful, big vintage amber cabochon on top, fully transparent, very warm to touch.
The whole thing is 3 inches high (8 cm), 1.5 inch wide (3.5 cm).
The base seal is 2 cm by 1.5 cm.

It is in a good state, the amber has 2 chips in it and some little scratches on the surface.
I could fix this, but it would take away some of the uniqueness I think.
I believe this to be from the late 19th century, start of 20th somewhere.
