Letter Seals

Used for centuries to identify and authenticate the letter's owner, the wax seal has a history dating back to Mesopotamia where it was once used as labels on consignments of trade goods. In Western Tradition however, we see a direct line of descent from the seals used in the ancient world, to those used in medieval and post-medieval Europe, and so to those used in legal contexts in the western world to the present day.
