A lovely Regency seal which was made circa 1820. It has an octagonal base which is inset with green chalcedony, which is a dyed agate. On it is engraved a ship in full sail and the words “Luff when it blows”. Luffing refers to a shaking or movement of the leading edge of a sail when it is not in trim. For example, if the sail is let out too far for the wind’s direction, the leading edge may shake or start to blow inward.
