Victorian Gold Masonic Orb Pendant

Victorian Gold Masonic Orb Pendant

$650.00


Description

DATE: Victorian, c.1880

A high quality antique Masonic Orb pendant, modelled in 9k gold and the silver pyramid innards have a gold wash. The frame that holds it all together is individually hinged; that the closing arms are hinged in this way is a clue to its age... more recent examples feature a rigid "cage" that maintains its spherical closed state.

These unusual pieces would have been used as a pocket watch fob. The orb opens to reveal six pyramids, in a cross formation, with each face hand-carved (by its original owner) with a masonic symbol.
