Seal with the Slepovron Coat-of-Arms

Late 18th-early 19th centuries

Golden quartz, silver, turquoise, L of die 4 cm, w 3.4 cm, h overall 6.2 cm

The seal, carved from a piece of golden quartz, is rectangular in form with cut-off corners, and mounted in a silver frame decorated with turquoise stones. A handle is attached to the top of the frame. The die shows the Polish Slepovron coat-of-arms (a crow perched on a horseshoe with a ring in its beak) encircled by trophies. Such a depiction was typical of the heraldic seals of the nobility living in the western and south-western regions of Russia at the end of the 18th and the beginning of the 19th centuries.
