Each one is beautiful. With the lovely handwriting and rich paper, they certainly are from an elegant time for those that lived in the chateau.

Interesting seals. Today, a lost form. Ideally G will be bilingual. French and English? He'll be prepared for visits to California.

Utterly fascinating to look at. I had no idea there was a color system with meanings!

I love sealing wax on letters. It is very hard to find people who write hand written letters anymore
but I still love to send them and received them.
Love Jeanne

More than words letters mingle souls.

Simply amazing. Stunning. And given how wax cracks over time these are so intact!

WOW! What an incredible opportunity for historical research beyond that which has already been done!

Great find ....what a pity that those are not in use nowadays anymore due digital writing and posting.

Wow, what a fascinating collection! I would be interested in a little more information. Thanks!
