The Hemp Collection of Seals and Seal- Matrices
- Art Funded
- Estate of W J Hemp
The majority are armorial though the collection includes emblematic seals, monograms and representations of groups of people. The armorial group includes Royal, ecclesiastical, civic, and personal. Also, Medieval peasant rings. Also, damaged and broken plaster casts of vignettes of the Virgin and Child, and two plain, non-seal, rings. The collection represents all the different types of seal current at different dates, with good examples.
