James II was the younger brother to Charles II was king of England, Ireland, and Scotland from between 1685 – 1688. His belief in catholicism ultimately caused his downfall, resulting in his own daughter Mary, and her husband William of Orange, deposing him in the glorious revolution in 1688. He attempted to retake the throne in 1690 in the Battle of the Boyne but was ultimately defeated, living out the rest of his days exiled in France
The Replica Seals Origins:
During the Victorian era, a now-forgotten collector gathered together a large number of plaster casts taken directly from seals on documents stored in churches libraries and other document repositories. They lay virtually hidden and unused for around 150 years. All of the seals in our collection are hand made from red resin, from the collected, forgotten, and re-found collection. Many of the originals may have been lost or destroyed.
Seal Size: 14.5cm Diameter
Our replica seals are molded from quality red resin. They are of the highest standard possible. They have a felted back and a small hook enabling wall mounting.
