Defiance and Surliness - Thistle Wax Seal

$90.00

Handcrafted from an antique wax seal from the 1800 England, this wax seal features a thistle, which symbolizes defiance and surliness.

The thistle is the national flower of Scotland, the meaning "No One Provokes Me With Impunity". The national emblem of Scotland, one thistle is said to have saved an entire Scottish army.

A thousand years ago, during the Vikings invasion of Scotland, an advancing enemy warrior stepped on a thistle and cried out in pain inadvertently waking the sleeping Scotsmen. Scottish King Kenneth III was so grateful that he adopted the thistle as his nation's emblem.

This fine silver charm is just over a 1/2” round and hangs on a 18" stainless steel baby ball chain that closes with a ball chain connector clasp. Other types of chains are sold separately.

Handcrafted in my studio just outside of Houston, Texas, each symbolic wax seal item from The Silver Acorn is hand-stamped in reclaimed fine silver or bronze and will be slightly different and uniquely yours.
