Perfect for that hard to buy for person in your life who loves cricket, or for someone who is after a wonderful and whimsical piece, here is a great antique seal in the form of a cricket bat, stumps and the most gorgeous cricket ball made from coral.
Dating from the early 1900's, the locket was made in 9 carat rose gold, with the gold having such a wonderful warm colour to it, and with the detail from the cricket scene, there is no doubt that this antique seal will be loved and treasured.
Originally designed to quite literally "seal" an envelope with a monogram in wax, at the base is a piece of bloodstone that has been left plain and doesn't have any engraving or intaglio.
With the base measuring 13.8mm in diameter, it also measures 29.2mm tall plus jump ring where you have the option to hang it on a chain.
This is such a charming antique seal, and one that will always bring a smile to your face.

What are seals used for?
Going back as far as Roman times, after a letter was sealed with wax, the writer would stamp the still warm wax with his or her seal to prevent the wrong person from opening the letter, as once broken, the wax seal could not be used again.
