Antique Scottish Thistle Wax Seal Pendant

SOLD!

We do have a soft spot for antique fob pendants, and there are many aspects which make this Georgian wax seal particularly unique. The main feature is the engraved thistle motif in the centre of the white Agate, both the royal symbol of Scotland and emblem of nobility and graciousness.

Around the thistle the words "DINNA FORGET" is engraved into Scottish Agate, translating to "do not forget", coming from an old Scottish poem "Dinna Forget Me" by Robert Burns. All these elements are held together by beautiful Rococo 9ct Gold casing, cocooning this stunning Georgian fob in its entirety. 

Steeped in Scottish history, one can only imagine the Scottish laird who once owned this magnificent fob pendant sealing his letters shut with a drop of fresh hot wax.
