Superb find this week,  c1795-1805 large approx 5 inch masonic ROYAL ARCH Jewel

Its all set in Silver , the  centre is enamel on a copper panel and surrounded by paste set stones. Unfortunately  LOL  !! the dealer thought it was some " religious or alladin thing "  Not cheap but still a very rare and pleasing purchase.

That's a pretty impressive looking object Lummox.

In a pinch you could use it as a ninja star.

Its pretty god-awful, Ross. Was this designed to be worn, or where would it have been used or displayed? What does the SD stand for?

Hi Mick

It has two litle loops to the reverse and would have been worn around the neck on a light ribbon or small decorative collarette. The SD stands for Second Degree ..........like what your good wife gives you LOL !

Great piece of early enameling Ross, I do appreciate it. I went to the Masonic Museum in London many moons ago... fabulous building and collection.

Hi Brian

Yes stunning collection, stunning building at Freemasons hall . Even if you are not interested in the masons or a mason yourself ( I'm not by the way ) it is well worth a visit and TOTALLY FREE. As an aside it is not ' stuffy ' at all and they are very welcoming. Many TV films and series have been filmed in the building namely Spooks, Poirot, New Tricks, Hustle, Hitch Hickers guide to the galaxy plus many more and ..............strangely The Muppets !!
