Two Masonic Medals


Two Masonic Medals



DATE: Antique and Vintage

A pair of masonic medals in their original boxes. One is a 'Masonic and Military Order of the Red Cross of Constantine' medal made by Masonic specialist jeweller Pulin Dutt. of Calcutta. It hangs from white ribbon with silver top finished in red and white enamel with the words ROMAN EAGLE No 43 1872-1972 at the top, and the name R. J. Holland engraved on the back. The medal itself featuring Greek alpha and omega letters under a six pointed star and what I think is the Eye of Providence in gold on white enamel, all over the Red Cross of Constantine with letters IHSV (In Hoc Signo Vinces, or 'in this sign you will conquer'). I presume - from the dates - it's from the 1970s.

The second is antique, London 1899, and packed with even more masonic symbolism. It's an openworked globe with a star of David inside, engraved with various words and symbols including a few Latin mottos: 

"Si talia jungere possis sit tibi scire satis " - If you can join such things, it is enough for you to know
"Nil nisi clavis deest" - nothing but a key is missing
"Deo reci fratribus honor fidelitas benevolentia" - Honour, faithfulness, and benevolence to God's Brothers
"Civis mundi" - Citizen of the world

And a Hindi word, I think: "Eyphkamen", which means If you want.


Roman Eagle: 3.9 inches

London: 4.3 inches 


Roman Eagle: 19.1g

London: 21.6


The Cross is marked: SILVER. Pulin Dutt
