Bloodstone Wax Intaglio Seal/Fob: "A teeny little wax seal from the 1830's period in England. Highly ornate bexel, shoulders and suspension loop. Made from a brass metal which was once gilded. The tiny flower decorations and scrolling are divine. The matrix is carved from bloodstone and has a masted sailing ship run aground on rocks. The motto around the matrix is in French stating 'Telle Est La Vie' or 'Such Is Life.'"
