Stag Antique Wax Seal Cuff Links
In the Victorian era, ladies would seal the letters they sent to lovers and friends with wax seals that depicted various different sentiments..
ORIGINS: These cufflinks are made using an antique Victorian “seal wheel” dating back to the late 1700’s, early 1800’s. Whimsical seals that conveyed the sentiments of the sender were popular with the ladies of the Victorian era, who would have these wheels with various sentiments to choose from. This antique may have sealed marriage proposals, words of comfort to a dear friend…
MEANING: The seal depicts the a deer, or stag, resting in a clearing. In heraldry, the stag was used to symbolise one who will not fight unless provoked; peace and harmony. The tranquility of the dear also symbolises virtue and purity.
CUFF LINKS: These cuff links are made out of fine silver (99.9% pure), and hand stamped with an antique wax seal of a stag or deer, then attached to silver tone cuff link backings.
Each cufflink is stamped, sanded, polished and oxidized for an antique look. Because they are hand-stamped individually and made to order, these seal stampings are truly unique, and no two stampings are the same (unlike those cast from a mold).. The cuff links are also available in copper.
DIMENSIONS: The cuff link face is slightly larger than 1/2″ across.
