Seller: worleyenterprisesinternationalllc (4,743) 99.9%, Location: Auburn, Alabama, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 273687709384 For sale is this stone intaglio. This piece looks to have been carved into a hard stone. The images appear to be carved in with a consistent style and fashion as original ancient pieces. The size, weight, and style of the piece are also consistent with original pieces that are on the market. These were commonly used in ancient days by kings, rulers, and other high-up people in places of stature and authority. They would have been used to seal a document with. Because of the holed long skinny shape, this one would have been rolled across wet wax, lead, or clay. The cool temperature of the stone would help the cooling of the wax. It would leave the unique seal pattern in the wax or clay. The hole through this one seems to be in “too good” condition for ancient drilling, which makes me assume modern tools were used for it (no earlier than 1600’s). I also didn’t pay the price of thousands of dollars that many of these can fetch at auction. I believe that this is likely a reproduction piece, or an authentic piece that was slightly modified in the late medieval period to be more practical (a charm or bead). Because of this, I’m not sure how old it actually is. It could be completely modern or completely ancient or somewhere in the middle. Officially I am selling it as a reproduction or modified piece to avoid legal conflicts. I’m not an expert so I can’t tell for sure though, unfortunately. Please let me know if you have any more info on it! It would make a great gift! Don’t pass it up! Be sure to check over the details and look at all of the photos so you will know exactly what you’ll get! Sometimes the photos include a picture of the item next to a ruler so that you can better tell the size of the item. This way we can avoid any accidental sizing issues. My goal is to make you happy!
