Wax Seals

Filed under: People — Stephen J F Plowman @ 18:52

I have been contacted by Andrea Guidi di Bagno, the Chief Paintings Conservator for the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, to see if I can assist in identifying three wax seals. The seals were found on the back of a painting by Thomas Gainsborough.

Seal C is the only one that is obviously heraldic.

The game is afoot!
