Antique 18th Century Dutch sealing wax case with armorial and monogram seals
A wonderful late 18th century sealing wax case with a hinged lid and two available seals, one with a family coat of arms and the other with a monogram device. The case is silver (likely around 800/1000) and Dutch in origin, with old city hallmarks for Amsterdam on the underside of the lid. The armorial seal shows a coat of arms with a chevron or "keper" shield, a coronet, and a bird as a crest. I have not been able to identify this Dutch family, but perhaps you can! The monogram is beautiful and stamps in a round, whereas the family coat of arms stamps with a square outline. Opens with the push of a tab. Spring loaded lid. Remnants of wax inside.
Measurements: 54 grams, 3 1/2" x 3/4"
Era: late 1700s-early 1800s
Markings: Obscured date letter or maker's mark, Saint Andrew's Crosses for the city of Amsterdam
