Fabulous Rare Georgian 18th Century Carved Handle Quill Trimmer-wax Seal Lifter
FABULOUS RARE GEORGIAN 18TH CENTURY CARVED HANDLE QUILL TRIMMER-WAX SEAL LIFTER. This is Fabulous Rare Georgian 18th century Carved Quill Trimmer-Wax Seal Lifter, i would estimate this was crafted circa 1770 making it nearly 250 years old, The detailing is exquisite, from the wonderful carved. Body which as you can see is designed to appear like a feather from a quill, it has an oval white metal carotouche which is free from engraving, it is just beautiful, this would have been used daily to cut the quills ready to write a letter and then it also would have been used to lift the wax seal from any letters they received, it. Has a smooth finish giving it a timeless elegance. The quality of the craftsmanship is superb, this would have once belonged to a weathly Geogian Gentleman and been used daily, this was many years ago when times were so very different. It is so very tactile and once picked up has the most wonderful feel, it is a wonderful example of a fine quality 18th century quill trimmer, to survive in such untouched original condition is amazing, this will add something very special to any collection, my photos dont do it justice.
