Sealing wax stamp with memento mori. Brass stamp and polished wood handle. With initial "D," snake, flowers, and a skull.
A fitting tribute to a beautifully damaged person in your life who maybe likes snakes and writing old-fashioned epistles exposing esoterics.
Brass has the tendency to come off its handle.
The Netherlands, c.1900s.
Head of stamp is 7/8 in diameter and it is 3 1/4 long; it weighs 1 oz.
