    From my mother collection.
    Wasn't able to find any similar...

    From the cannons, I think they are official seals/stamps, Cambodian or Siamese (Thaï).

    Biggest has cannons on both sides.
    Medium one has a warrior deity on largest face and lotus blossoms on smallest.
    Little one has a kneeling person offering a box on largest face and a bunch of foliage above ondulating lines.

    Dimensions are height 4.6/16 to 2.5 inches.

    Detective's help needed!

    6. kyratango kyratango, 6 years ago

      I will guess something here, i believe they are trade seal,from merchant, long time ago.
      The 2 smallest was for grain or?and spice, the larger for ammunition,the problem is,i don't see initial(family initial or merchant).
      For sure they made to use by hand(small grove in the middle), for or maybe for seal contract with other, with red wax.

      Very nice item,i love it.

      Take care
