Wax Seals

Wax Seals

Before e-mail and the postal service, letters were written in pen and ink and then folded and sealed with drips of wax and a insignia seal. This prevented the courier from reading the personal correspondence and the seal was of the family crest to insure the identity of the sender. Make your own history with these seals and metal stamps. While they cannot be mailed through postal service, they are perfect for hand delivery!

    J.Herbin Sealing Waxes

    La Societe J. Herbin, Maitre Cirier a Paris, was established in 1670. 

    Generations of remarkable people, from Louis XIV to Coco Chanel, have used this traditional sealing wax, and it is well known around the world as one of the highest quality sealing waxes ever made.

    M. Herbin was a sailor, and from his many journeys to India he brought back to Paris formulas for manufacturing sealing wax. His special lacquer formula improved the quality of the seals in adhesion and neatness, helping him to become famous throughout the kingdom.

    Then as today, sealing wax was used for documents and correspondence, but also in decoration and bottling. J. Herbin has supplied Chanel from its beginning with wax used for finishing touches on their perfume bottles.
