Compass Rose Wax Seal Stamp

$16.45


The wax seal has been continually used on important documents since antiquity in the time of Mesopotamia. Sealing with a stamped wax seal has long been an elegant and noteworthy way to seal a letter, invitation or announcement.

This line of wax seals is the highest quality for non-antique seals we've ever used.

Each seal's handle is made of smoothly turned wood. The handle is sanded and finished to have an elegant look and comfortable feel. Each sealing wax stamp medallion has a crisp and well-routed image. (The manufacturer uses a CNC router.) The medallions are made of brass and are screwed into the wooden handle.

Each wax seal stamp comes in a Vegan suede, drawstring pouch.

You are purchasing the following with this listing:

• One (1) Brass Wax Seal stamp with wooden handle.
• One (1) Drawstring pouch for the wax seal stamp.

Compass Rose

A compass rose sometimes called a windrose, or Rose of the Winds, is a figure on a compass, map, nautical chart, or monument used to display the orientation of the cardinal directions: North, East, South, and West— and their intermediate points. Ornate compass roses (like this one), began to first appear on navigational charts in 1375. (Source: Wikipedia)

A compass rose evokes the time when three-masted schooners sailed the open seas in search of adventure. Or, a time when explorers traveled to far away jungles looking for evidence of lost civilizations.

Instructions for use:

To prepare you wax seal stamp for use, spray cooking oil spray on a soft, clean, cloth. Then rub the wax seal stamp on the cloth before use. Make sure that there are no fibers from the cloth on the seal before use. This way the wax won't stick to the seal. When you use the seal, wait until the wax cools a little bit, then press the seal and count to ten before removing.

The Wax Seal measures 3 1/2" x 1" in diameter. The seal is 1" in diameter. Sealing wax sticks are not included but can be purchased elsewhere in our shop.
