Medieval Vessica Shaped Seal Ecclesiastical Eagle
This is an excavated medieval bronze ecclesiastic seal, dating to the 13th century. This example is deeply cut with an eagle device, the inscription is cut in a Lombardic script and as yet to be translated. The seal will benefit from further research and cleaning. It is a genuine seal and not one of the common 19th-century copies. With a bit of work, I am sure this will make a nice project.
