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


Item Details

Glass intaglio seal measures 20mm long, 15mm wide and 4mm deep

Depicts a farmer and plow with motto "Sua si bona norint"

From the "O fortunatos nimium sua si bona norint, agricolas" translated from Latin means "The farmers would count themselves lucky, if they only knew how good they had it" (Virgil, The Georgics, book 2, verse 458). From this expression it is evident the love the poet from Mantua had for the beauty and charm of country life.
