19th cent wax seal, anchor, cross, heart, monogram, sailor’s?

Antique brass wax seal with engraved heart, anchor, cross and “A W”


An antique wax seal, brass and turned wood handle with an oval brass head.  The face of the seal has an entwined monogram, A W, with an anchor, Cross and a heart.  What looks like water with tiny waves below the letters, makes me think this is a nautical reference.  Lovely old patina and lots of wear to the wood with appropriate wear and deposits from wax and ink to the face.

3 1/4″ long, 1″ x 5/8″ across the face.
