Medieval Vessica Shaped Seal Ecclesiastical Eagle


Code: 10706

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.
