The Hope Of Return Takes The Sting From Adieu

A Victorian black paste seal to mimic onyx.
Featuring text translating to ‘The hope of return takes the sting from adieu’.

This phrase seems to have first appeared in a collection of musical scores published by H. De Marsan, 60 Chatham Street, New York. The 4921 song sheets in the mighty tome featured music from 1800-1890 and included ‘The Sailor’s Adieu’ from which this phrase is taken.

Rounded rectangle, east/west orientation.
13.5 x 12 x 3 mm.
Excellent antique condition.

All seals are sold as seen.
If you elect a silver setting lead times are 8-10 weeks.
Worldwide shipping is included in the price but customs duties and/or import taxes are the client’s responsibility.
