Safety Through Strength - Crane on Tortoise Wax Seal


Handcrafted from an antique wax seal from the early 1800’s England, this wax seal features a crane on top of tortoise with the sun in sky and a banner with the Latin phrase “Tutum Te Robere Reddam” which translates to “I will give you safety through strength."

A crane holding a stone in its claw is a well-known symbol in heraldry, and is known as a crane in its vigilance. At night cranes take turns keeping watch for enemies.

The fine silver charm is just under 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 her 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.
