Vntg WINSLOW LEWIS K.T. Salem Mass Medal Pin Badge w/WITCH &Broom &Crescent Moon

The postage is what the United States Postal Service charges I do not charge any extra fees.

My husband and mother passed away and I am selling items from their estates. They both had many hobbies and collections and they loved antiques and collectables of all kinds. Mother loved to buy all kinds of things and never use them!

DESCRIPTION:

This sale is for what was a pin, badge or medal and I’m not sure which one. The bottom part has a witch with her hat and broom riding on a crescent moon.

The top piece in the shape of a ribbon has:

WINSLOW LEWIS K.T.

SALEM, MASS

A friend thinks this has something to do with the Knight Templar but I can’t find anything related to this pin in my search of Knight Templar so I don’t think so. This would be a fun piece for Halloween.

If you want to read more about Winslow Lewis it is at the bottom of the listing.

He was asea in the construction of the first half of the nineteenth century.

CONDITION:

This pin is a white metal and the design is “stamped” into the metal. The pin on the back is missing and it looks like someone tried to solder it. Other than the missing pin it is in excellent condition. I have not polished this because most buyers like the patina that comes with age.

It had been carefully stored along with 1000’s of other items Mother purchased and never used. I remember seeing this in the china cabinet around 1980 but I don’t know how old it is or how long Mother had it.

This is clean and ready to display or give as a gift.

APPROX. MEASUREMENTS:

Height: 2 ¾”

Width: 1 & 7/8”

Information about Winslow Lewis:

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Winslow Lewis(1770–1850) was asea in the construction of the first half of the nineteenth century.

A resident ofWellfleet, Massachusetts, Lewis began developing his ideas during theembargoof American shipping during theNapoleonic wars. He createda new lighting systembased on Argand lamps; in 1812 theUnited States Congresspurchased his patent rights for the system. In so doing, it awarded him a contract to equip all American lighthouses with the lamps; the fitting took four years. In 1815 Lewis won another contract with Samuel H. Smith, Commissioner of Revenue, which gave him a monopoly over the provision of winter pressedSpermaceti oil for lighthouses throughout the Eastern seaboard.It also allowed him to visit the lighthouses yearly to ensure their smooth operation.

Lewis soon branched out into contracting work, winning offers to build new lighthouses around the country. WhenStephen Pleasontontook over the responsibility for these contracts in 1820 and reorganized the Lighthouse Establishment, Lewis apparently continued his oil supply contract.Pleasonton began an alliance with Lewis, who was soon being awarded most lighthouse construction deals in the United States. While demand for the towers was high and funds were short, Pleasonton took great pride in the fact that Lewis was able to complete the work cheaply and rapidly.

Sapelo Island LightinGeorgia

Lewis soon had a set of standard plans drawn up to meet demand; these plotted out five different sizes of lighthouses, at 25, 30, 40, 50, and 65 feet high. Many such towers were built; most were made of brick, but a few were constructed of stone. But Lewis knew little about proper engineering practices, and most of the lighthouses were either poorly constructed, or they were too short. Most had to be replaced; only a handful survive today.

Little is known of Lewis' later career. His nephew,I. W. P. Lewis, was also a lighthouse builder and engineer.
