Product Description

The quill pen is the most common symbol used to refer to writers, particularly for professionals.  For about 2000 years before the invention of metal nib pens in the 19th century, it was the instrument of choice for scribes.  To this day, the Supreme Court of the United States provides quill pens for lawyers appearing before the bench, which they often take as souvenirs.  Some scribes in the Society for Creative Anachronism still use them for crafting scrolls.  This product is a wax seal for stamping this symbol in sealing wax to add a special finishing touch to your letters.  Buy it as a unique gift to your favorite writer!

The bronze versions are a different model from the stainless steel - bronze is capable of finer detail, so it has more detail on the plumage.

A wax seal adds old fashioned panache and class to envelopes and documents. Before self-adhesive envelopes, everyone used a seal of some kind to keep messages private. In our present day of emails and instant messaging, taking the time to write a letter makes a message stand out as important, worth taking the time to think carefully and spend money on paper, ink, wax, postage, etc. A wax seal makes sure that your letter is noticed among the junk mail.

 

Unlike most other wax seals, the top of the handle is marked with the same symbol as the impression, and the stem is off round, making it easier to see and feel that the impression will be straight and not turned sideways or upside down. The image on top also helps you know at a glance which one is which without picking them all up when you have more than one. The impression will be about 3/4" (19 mm) in diameter.
