Georgian Antique Masonic Fob Pendant
Set closed back in silver is an early 19th century verre églomisé (back of glass gilded with gold) painting in gold and gouache (opaque paint medium) on triangular glass. A gold border delineates the perimeter and encloses a columned archway firmly grounded on grass. Within is a triangular sun ray element and what appears to be a large urn or table. Surmounting the arch and set in blue sky is a sun disk reminiscent of the Egyptian sun god Horus. Outlining the pendant are twenty-seven (27) hand cut pastes foiled and set closed back.
Date: Circa 1800 - 1840 and possibly earlier.
Important: This pendant should not be in water for an extended period of time nor exposed to other liquids, cleaning products or harsh chemicals.
Measurements: 2 inches (5.5 cm) in length including bale by 1-3/4 inches (4.5 cm) in width. Weight of 14.2 grams (9.2 dwt).
Condition: Excellent for its age; a few tiny chips and light wear to pastes; a few later letters and numbers scratched lightly onto the back surface – typical of jeweler's marks.
