Celebrate your love of the feline with one of these silver cat charms made with an antique wax seal. Tracy Menz handcrafts each charm using wax seals that date back to between 1730 to 1890. Mostly from France and England, the seals are from a personal collection. Years ago seals were used to close a letter for a loved one or royalty and serve as a stamp of indisputable authenticity. It was common practice to destroy the seal once the owner died, which is the reason so few original seals exist today. These pure fine silver kitty charms serve as a wearable sentiment of a time gone by. The cat face image appears raised on the charm.
Tracy's artisan pieces are made of fine pure silver (.999). The patina on each of these unique pet charms has been through an oxidization process to give it an antique vintage look. No two are alike so each charm is uniquely different and uniquely yours! Cat charms made with this wax seal measure approximately 7/16" in diameter.
Many of our clients enjoy pairing several Tracy Menz charms together to personalize a necklace.
