Victorian Pentagram Masonic Orb Pendant

Victorian Pentagram Masonic Orb Pendant

$850.00


Description

DATE: Victorian, c.1890

A cool and very unusual masonic orb pendant.... Instead of the usual six-pyramids-in-a-cross formation, this one opens with five segments that create a pentagram/star formation when opened. The central part is a five-sided pyramid, while the five outer parts each have three different surfaces, all hand-engraved with masonic symbols.

These distinctive pieces would have been used by masons as pocket watch fobs. Subtle and discreet, they would have been instantly recognised by other masons, but presumably not by the general populace...
