Introduction. A seal matrix is used for making an impression on a wax seal, to authenticate a document or to keep it closed. Some specialised matrices may be used for making impressions on lead seals, such as cloth seals (e.g. NFAHG-CB0). The earliest seal matrices on the PAS database date from the early-medieval period, but these are rare; most date from the 13th and 14th centuries. The earlier seal matrices often have an unpierced tab on the edge as in Cat. no's 1 and 2 but all the vesica shapes have a small pierced lug on the reverse (top) corner. The central design or device shows very little variation with most of those illustrated being based on the fleur-de-lis . They can be used in conjunction with the seals card index to identify seals in The National Archives’ collection.

Armstrong. Hodges, Figgis and Co. Price 5s. Mr. E. C. R.

We look to Mr. Armstrong to do for Irish Seals what Doctor Walter de Gray Birch has done. By the fifteenth century, vesica seals were somewhat out of fashion, but they still occur on documents, because monasteries in particular tended to continue using seal matrices made years - or sometimes centuries - earlier. 13th C Medieval seal matrix - need soaking to remove crust on seal face 13thC Vessica seal matrix.
