Description

A very rare and impressive Masonic creamware jug, dated 1793. In original, un-restored condition.
Beautifully shaped, and replete with Masonic imagery.
One side has a Masonic coat of arms, with the words "A Heart That Conceals, And The Tongue That Never Reveals" inscribed above. The wording within the coat of arms reads "Amor Honor Et Justitia" (love, honour and justice), and "Sit Lux Et Lux Fuit" (let there be light, and there was light).
On the other side is a town scene with figures in front of a lodge, and a figure floating above with the inscription "Veritas Praevalebit" (truth will prevail).
Below the spout is inscribed "Nantwich Lodge 1793". Below this the letter G is enclosed by a Masonic compass and set square. In this context the letter G probably stands for Geometry, and it also stands more generally for God, the Great Architect of the Universe.
Condition as evident from photos.
9.5 inches high, 8 inches wide, 5 inches deep (24 cm high, 20 cm wide, 13 cm deep)
We can arrange delivery, UK and worldwide.
14 day money back guarantee.
