Antique Past Master Breast Jewel
Antique Past Master Jewel - 1897 Grand River Lodge
This beautiful pendant was presented to my great-great-grandfather in 1897 by the Grand River Lodge.
It is constructed of a very fine gold.
As evidenced by this 114 year old (as of 2011) breast jewel, fine craftsmanship was,... has always been,... and will always remain in style.
Thanks for sharing this beautiful piece of Masonic jewelry for everyone to enjoy!
In past eras, so many of these one-of-a-kind hand-crafted and artful pieces of jewelry have been tucked away in jewelry boxes or safe deposit boxes.
With the advent of the internet, I think it's wonderful that you are able to share its beauty with hundreds of thousands of people each year. Knowledge of the arts and sciences benefits everyone.
Thank you, again, for sharing, Lynne!
