Late nineteenth century gilt bronze desk seal as a Cherub.

This beautifully cast bronze desk seal is likely to have been produced in France towards the end of the nineteenth century, a centre at that period for high quality bronze production. Finely and delcately sculpted, the seal is formed as a Cherub, one arm raised, garlanded in flowers. The seal has a blank detatchable matrix which may be engraved making it suitable for contemporary use should this be desired.

  This charming gilt bronze desk seal stands 8 cm high, is 2 cm at its widest point and 1.3 cm at its deepest. (Measurements approximate). It is in excellent condition showing only light wear appropriate to its age and substance. It has no damage and no restoration.
