1 of a number of quality fresh to the market antique and vintage Masonic jewels and related items listed today.... you will see some RARE and seldom seen Victorian jewels, as well as a Georgian pierced - fretted plate jewel ......all listed are far better quality than any of the brand new shitey monkey metal they make so called jewels from these days..and the online masonic shops describe their CRAP jewels as superb best quality....they do not tell you they are for Christmas cracker use only.
I like to leave the best till last....here is an absolute corking RARE Georgian hand pierced - fretted from a sheet of silver MASONIC jewel... WOW factor this one.. it has NO hallmarks ...which is a pity... but you cannot have everything.. as you can see its an oval shape... then the design has been fine cut out and engraved on BOTH sides.. the workmanship is brilliant... this is a SERIOUS private collectors top table item or money no object public museum item.
It could well have been gilt originally as I see flecks of gold when looking thru a loope..... someone may be able to date this jewel if they have a number in their collection or have afew to research ... its certainly Georgian and looks like 1750 - 90 era to me....going by the outer edge design....and how well the devices have all been engraved and finished off.
It has all the devices you see on masonic jewels.. everything going for it.. as well as a motto on both sides...VERITAS EST INTUS - VIRTUTI ET SILENTIO .
The jewel is 4.5cm wide x 58mm long x 1mm deep sheet silver..it weighs approx....15.1grams.
Its in the Thomas Harper era of masonic jewels.
My price has nothing to do with the metal content of the antique jewel.
A very good book to have a look in if you have not allready got a copy is The medals & jewels of British Freemasonry by Trevor Harris.
Please see close up pictures for more detail.
Conversion ... approx... 2.5cm = 25mm =1 inch
