Stylized and ornamental palm trees have been used in design since ancient Egypt. An ornamental palm like this was also a common symbol found in Art Deco decorations, many of which were used in Egyptian Revival Decor in the 1920s. The palm when used in ancient Greek and Roman decoration is called an Acanthus.
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 ancient ornamental palm symbol conveys a sense of classical design to your correspondence.
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.

Instructions for use:
The easiest way to use these sealing wax bars is to melt them with a long-handled lighter. If you use a candle, you will get black charred residue on the wax, which will discolor your wax seal.
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.
