A beautiful small antique French handwritten envelope with original, red wax seal dating from c.1820.
This unique little piece is perfectly crumpled and worn, tatty around the edges and colour stained with age. The handwriting on the front is incredibly beautiful as is the intact red wax seal on the back, in which you can still see the coat of arms of the sender.
This lovely piece would look pretty styled on a shelf or old desk, maybe in a vintage letter tray with other papers and old writing pieces... It could also be framed as a unique piece of wall decor.
