An exceptional antique Freemason wooden box dating the late 19th century. The coffret has been made of hard wood with finely crafted dovetail joins. It has an hinged lid which has been engraved and hand painted with masonic symbols and emblems including the square, the all-seing eye of God, the moon, the sun and the compass. The box was used to store accessories for Free Masonic ceremonies.
The box has an ornate metal handle.
Freemasonry is a fraternal organisation that arose from obscure origins in the late 16th to early 17th century. Freemasonry now exists in various forms all over the world, with a membership estimated at around six million, including approximately 150,000 in Scotland and Ireland, over a quarter of a million under the jurisdiction of the United Grand Lodge of England and just under two million in the United States.
The masonic box is 13 1/4" Long, 6 3/4" Wide and 5 1/4" Tall (34 cm x 17 cm x 13,5 cm).
The dovetail wood box is in very good condition. The original lock system has been lost but could easily be replaced. There are signs of age including light surface scratches, marks and patina to the wood in places.
