About the Collection

We were captivated by the beauty and mystery of this antique rotating wheel containing 16 doublets, each composed of an engraved glass intaglio bonded to glass with an layer of colored adhesive, likely used as wax seals

Because seals are used to make impressions, each intaglio is engraved with a design and inscription in reverse

We took them out of their original settings, carefully separated them, and now invite our customers to reimagine these intaglio seals as talismans imbued with new meaning
