Wax Seal Charm "Better To Bend Than To Break"

Wax Seal Charm "Better To Bend Than To Break"

Product Information

Wax Seal charm "Better To Bend Than To Break". 
The words framing this piece reads in French:   Mieux vaut rompre que plier (which means: Better to bend than to break).
The ancient Aesop childhood fable "the Oak and the Reeds". Adapt and survive. Better to give a little when it is folly to resist, than to resist stubbornly and be destroyed. Sometimes you have to stoop to conquer.


The charm is approximately 16-18mm wide. The words are in French and can be read with a magnifying glass, lettering is tiny and some letters may be not fully legible.
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 Giant Oak stood near a brook in which grew some slender Reeds. When the wind blew, the great Oak stood proudly upright with its hundred arms uplifted to the sky. But the Reeds bowed low in the wind and sang a sad and mournful song.

"You have reason to complain," said the Oak. "The slightest breeze that ruffles the surface of the water makes you bow your heads, while I, the mighty Oak, stand upright and firm before the howling tempest."
"Do not worry about us," replied the Reeds. "The winds do not harm us. We bend and so we do not break. You, in all your pride and strength, have so far resisted their blows. But the end is coming."
As the Reeds spoke a great hurricane rushed out of the north. The Oak stood proudly and fought against the storm, while the yielding Reeds bowed low. The wind redoubled in fury, broke a large branch, and then, all at once the great tree fell, torn up by the roots, and lay among the pitying Reeds.

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!
