1934F103.20 Signet Matrix - Seal Matrix, 1750-1850
A 'signet' or 'seal matrix' is a small stamp used for impressing the mark of its owner in wax onto documents. This is one of a collection of twenty-seven acquired by the museum in 1934. The majority of examples are made of moulded translucent glass, in this case mauve. This example bears a design of a dog near a tomb.
