Antique Afghan Arabic Middle Eastern Silver Lapis Turquoise Wax Seal Signet Ring. Today we are pleased to offer for sale a rare antique Afghan silver and gemstone wax seal. This relic from the late 19th century comes from Afghanistan and is beautifully crafted and detailed. The wax seal is crafted of jeweler acid-tested silver. It features a pear-shaped body with flat bottom and inset shank. The exterior of the seal is profusely decorated with silver filigree geometrical decorative borders, some with turquoise and Lapis lazuli inlays. Large flowers are inlaid with mosaic-like Lapis lazuli and turquoise chips. The bottom of the seal features a ceramic tile with etched design of an animal which appears to be an Alpine Ibex.
