A pretty seal with an engraved intaglio of the doves of Pliny. In one of the rooms on the upper floor of the museum of the Capitol at Rome are the celebrated Doves of Pliny, one of the finest and most perfectly preserved specimens of ancient mosaic. In the 1820s it was the fashion for families to send their offspring on “The Grand Tour”. This little seal would have been purchased to commemorate that experience.
