$595.00


For sale is an original Tiffany Favrile letter seal made by Tiffany Studios, New York. The seal stands 1 3/4" tall and is approximately 1" in diameter at its widest point. This item is known as a letter wax seal and pattern is a Gold Scarab form. The foot or the bottom is 3/4" in diameter.

The wax seal depicts 3 ribbed scarabs joined together at their back shells to form the top of the seal. You can see their antennae in front of their heads and their pincers reaching towards the bottom on each side of the body. There is a decorative beaded border surrounding the bottom edge. The flat underside bottom of the seal is smooth and has the monogrammed letters "CR" engraved into the glass in an old English style cursive. Could this have been Chris Reeves "Superman's" wax seal? Just kidding as this is much earlier than Chris Reeves. The Gold Favrile Aurene luster or iridescent is just outstanding!!! There are beautiful platinum blues with some fuchsia colored hues on the brilliant gold iridescence body. When the piece is sitting flat it emits strong golds with hints of platinum blues.

This Tiffany Favrile wax seal is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. There are a few minor scratches and some minor wear in the iridescence but nothing to obtrusive. This is truly an excellent example of this seal. There is no signature as these usually carried monogrammed letters engraved into the bottom such as this one. This is a well documented form made by Tiffany Studio's Favrile art glass line. This seal will enhance any desk set pattern one might have built with Tiffany Studios items. This piece was made circa 1895-1910.
