2Plomb de scelle "Fratelli Verga - Palermo" Empty Sicilian Sumac Seal le Sam 18 Mai - 20:48

I believe the second letter of the family name is an ‘E’. Even though it is deformed I can make out the serifs from the top and bottom of the letter. The seal therefore relates to the Verga Brothers of Palermo. Even though the product to which it relates is not named I am virtually certain that this seal was attached to a consignment of Sicilian sumac.
Sumac was a high quality vegetable tanning agent. At the beginning of the 20th century there were concerns about the adulterants that were being added to Sicilian sumac by its producers. As a result a major analysis of hundreds of sumac samples took place, which were published in 1908 by Veitch. This contains the names of many of the actual Sicilian sumac producers including the Verga Brothers. Amongst the results of the analysis is recorded:

Fratelli Verga, Palermo [Veitch, Table II, sample 376, p17]

“Commercial Sicilian Sumac” by F.P.Veitch, Chief of the Leather and Paper Laboratory (1908) See   https://ia802608.us.archive.org/14/items/commercialsicili00veit/commercialsicili00veit.pdf
