This lovely porcelain bird is a whimsical letter seal. The hand painted porcelain bird has an 18k yellow gold base with a carved carnelian seal of the messenger God Mercury. This Chelsea Porcelain seal in the form of a bird dates from the Derby-Chelsea period circa 1770. You can find details of the whimsical seals created in the 18th century by The Chelsea Porcelain Factory in the excellent reference book "The Chelsea Porcelain Toys" published in 1925.

Details.....The bird measures 1.42" tall and the seal measures .75" x .70". In Very Good Antique Condition. You should always expect some wear on vintage and antique jewels.
