Gold Spinning Wheel Desk Seal

A stunning spinning wheel desk seal made with an unmarked gold wheel and collar coupled to a tapering and faceted amethyst coloured glass handle.  The wheel comprises five individual matrices, each one showing a different sentimental image or picture.  The intricate nature of the craftmanship displayed on the wheel gives an indication to the quality of the piece.

Seal Detail

The spinning wheel offers five individual matrices, in both subject and material used.  They comprise the following:

Amethyst L'AMITIE
Green stone A VOUS
Pink stone LA FOY


The intricately carved wheel has ornately decorated side panels in the form of foliage leaves.  Each of the five matrices are set in hatched gold mounts and are engraved with sentimental messages, which would undoubtedly be used by the owner when replying to personal correspondence, depending on which sentiment was wanted.
