We are looking at Vintage Fleur De Lis Sealing Wax Stamp and Walkden’s Wax Sticks today.
If you have found yourself wanting to add a little extra to your letter writing consider adding the finishing touches with sealing wax. Back in 2015 one of my earlier blog posts was on In praise of sealing wax for finishing our letters.
Vintage Fleur De Lis Sealing Wax Stamp
Over at the Etsy shop MoonstruckVintageAZ Etsy, open since 2013, is showing having this Vintage Fleur De Lis Sealing Wax Stamp and Walkden’s Wax Sticks available for sale. The marking on the box is Italy.
“In our digital age, the art of letter writing is ever teetering on the edge of being lost. For those who still believe in the magic, the romance, the mystery, the poetry and permanence of letter writing we offer this wonderful sealing wax kit. This vintage kit features a beautifully decorative metal stamp with a fleur de lis design, and four wax candles from Walkden’s.
… Four colors include red, yellow, black and green. … The gold metal stamp has a pretty fleur de lis handle and corresponding impression. … The stamp and wax candles come in their original box for easy storage. There is also a small pamphlet about wax seals included. …”
My encouragement to us today is to go dust off that box of sealing wax and USE it with the next round of letters we write and send. This means for my next round of pen pal letters I’ll be making a point to add this step to my letter writing. Perhaps you will too!
