Very beautiful condition. 1st part of the XIX century. Kingdom of the Two Sicilies.

Very finely carved in a strongly grained ivory heart.
This seal represents the “fist of vengeance”- Symbol (here) of the region’s (what would become Italy) public figures’ opposition to the Austrian occupation of the first part of the XIX century.
The fist is even holding a snake, which is the symbol of vengeance!!!
The base has been tested with a touchstone and is Sterling silver. It is in the rocaille style- there aren’t, of course, any monograms but only a diamond patterned surface referred to as “abeille” (bee) completely... anonymous...
State of the whole piece: Superb/ very beautiful- No cracks (from dryness or breaking)- No restorations- Nothing missing-
The seal is not insolated.
Dates from the first part of the XIX century.
Size: Height 5 cm.
Weight: 8.61 grams
This piece dates from well before 1947 and is in perfect compliance with the terms of the WDC Convention on ivory trade- Certificate is attached to photo No. 10.
The terms of the CITES do not allow for shipping outside of the EU.
Rare!
Registered shipping with insurance

    Everything has been absolutely perfect, from I ordered until I just received the package at the door.
    The product I bought was even nicer than expected, and the little handwritten note was sweet!
