An oval brass seal matrix with intaglio armorial


The seal, meauring 32 x 28 mm and with a thickness of 6mm, has a circular piercing on the reverse. Its weight, solidity, and sturdiness suggest that it has perhaps had an office or commercial use rather than having been a private person’s. The central castle device is beneath two crests, one a hawk, the other what is probably a dragon’s head between serpents. It could fittingly belong to a character in Game of Thrones but probably pre-dates that by the best part of a hundred years.
