This is a fabulously rare little item.
This wonderful wax seal was produced in England during the early 19th century, circa 1810. The seal features a central leaf design with the French text surrounding it reading “Je ne change qu’en mourant” which translated to ‘I only change when I die.’

The wax seal is attached to a card backing. What a lovely little survivor this is. A truly original item that would make the perfect

conversation piece. Please see our collection of 18th and 19th century art and antiques listed separately in our store.

Measuring: Board width 2 1/8 inch (5.5 cm) by height 2 1/8 inch (5.5 cm). Wax total width 1.25 inch (3 cm) by height 1.25 inch (3 cm).

Condition: Good antique and aged - please see images.
