Sealing wax has been used throughout history for sealing documents and correspondence, as well as for bottling and decoration. For over 300 years, J. Herbin sealing waxes have been well-known as among the highest-quality sealing waxes available in the world and used by countless remarkable people, from King Louis XIV to Coco Chanel. Their special lacquer formulas—gathered by M. Herbin during his many voyages to India—offered better adhesion and neatness than any other wax available in Paris at the time.
This is a varnished wood handle for use with J. Herbin brass wax seals, which screw onto the handle. The brass wax seal pictured is not included.
