Wax Seal Charm "The Tortoise And The Hare"

Wax Seal Charm "The Tortoise And The Hare"

Product Information

Wax Seal charm "The Tortoise And The Hare". 

The words framing this piece reads in French: Droit Chemin (which means the Right Path). From the Aesop childhood fable "the Tortoise and the Hare"   we all learn that "Slow but steady wins the race." One can succeed at anything with careful attention.

Note: size of charm is approximately 17-18mm in diameter. The words are in French and can be read with a magnifying glass.
The wax seals are made by hand in Myrtle Beach, SC by RQP Studio. They are made from a personal collection of antique wax seals that dates from 1730's to 1890's. The wax seal used in creating  this charm is from the 1840’s, a French seal from the Napoleon III of France era.  A bronze seal etui with beautiful brass engraved discs.  

One day a hare was bragging about how fast he could run. He bragged and bragged and even laughed at the tortoise, who was so slow. The tortoise stretched out his long neck and challenged the hare to a race, which, of course, made the hare laugh.
"My, my, what a joke!" thought the hare. "A race, indeed, a race. Oh! what fun! My, my! a race, of course,  Mr. Tortoise, we shall race!" said the hare.
The forest animals met and mapped out the course. The race begun, and the hare, being such a swift runner, soon left the tortoise far behind. About halfway through the course, it occurred to the hare that he had plenty of time to beat the slow trodden tortoise.
"Oh, my!" thought the hare, "I have plenty of time to play in the meadow here." And so he did.
After the hare finished playing, he decided that he had time to take a little nap. "I have plenty of time to beat that tortoise," he thought. And he cuddle up against a tree and dozed.
The tortoise, in the meantime, continued to plod on, albeit, it ever so slowly. He never stopped, but took one good step after another.
The hare finally woke from his nap. "Time to get going," he thought.  And off he went faster than he had ever run before!
He dashed as quickly as anyone ever could up to the finish line, where he met the tortoise, who was patiently awaiting his arrival.

This charm is made of fine silver .999 (which is 99.9% pure silver), and a 18" sterling silver chain is included (sterling silver is 92.5% pure silver). Please note that the patina on the wax seal charm has been through a oxidization process to give it a antique, vintage look. The wax seal has been pressed into the silver by hand, and this makes each and every wax seal a unique different look. The wax seal you will be receiving is similar to the one in the picture.
The wax seal charm and chain comes beautifully packaged in a clear gift box with information of the particular seal used and what it means.
We hope you'll enjoy wearing it!
