Wax seal stamp Napoleon made of hand-chiseled white bronze, is the brainchild of master jewelers Bortoletti and is a true gem of design.
The Napoleon wax stamp is designed and drawn by art masters inspired by the great man of war.
Napoleon was considered the greatest strategist in military history; he obtained his appointment as a second lieutenant when he was only 16 years old.
The eagle shown in the seal is the main element of the emblem, a symbol of imperial Rome, associated since antiquity with military victory.
The Bees engraved in the seal are a symbol of immortality and resurrection. They were discovered in 1653 in Tournai in the tomb of Childerico I.
According to a Breton legend, bees were generated by Christ’s tears on the cross.
They are considered the oldest emblem of the sovereigns of France. Napoleon had the treasure bees sewn on his cloak used for his coronation as emperor.

You can use our alcohol lamp or alternatively a kitchen lighter to melt the wax.
Another way to melt wax is with a strainer by heating it directly over the flame of the alcohol stove. If you have doubts you can see the video tutorial on the channel.
A good sealing wax for letters should drip quickly even directly over the flame without burning, remain liquid to have time to imprint the seal.
Once imprinted in seal on the wax, one must wait twenty seconds before peeling it off so that the wax cools.
As a final touch, he can give a gold or silver effect by swiping a finger over the wax impression with gold or silver cream.
