C1900 French 800 Silver Louis XVI style Desk Seal with Rabbit
Still in its original blue case, this desk seal is in the Louis XVI taste popular in the early 20th century. Readers will be familiar with the many Faberge items in this style, no doubt. The surmounting rabbit has green stone eyes. The 8 sided, tapering handle is decorated with floral garlands, and has an engine turned background of pellets and waves. Possibly the silver handle was intended to be enamelled, as guilloche enamel would require just such a background. The whole seal, including the v base metal seal plate is 12 cm tall. The seal is engraved with the letter "PRC", so if these are initials lmown to you, here is a possible pertinent gift!
