Day 49 | Seal Handles

Today, we're going to bring you back to the 19th century to take a look of how the wax seal stamps look like!
.
The vintage seal handles were made with some really fancy materials!
Such as ivory, gold, coral, silver and even precious stone!
They are literally a piece of fancy accessory!
.
Hope one day we could collect some of these beautiful piece of history!
Hope you enjoy today's finds!
