Italy - First half 20th century

Object: Masonic Walking Stick and Masonic Compass
Material: Silverplate
Estimated Period: First half 20th century
Country of Origin: Italy
Condition: Excellent condition - barely used with minimal signs of aging & wear
Dimensions: 95×5×5 cm
Weight: 0.5 kg

Walking stick from an antique shop in the historic centre of Rome, active from 1920 to 2006

The lot consists of a walking stick plated in silver with the Masons' symbol engraved, depicting a square and compass.
The square and compass were used together starting from the 17th century and were linked to the figure Hiram Abif who, according to the Masonic tradition, was the chief architect of the construction of Solomon's Temple. This character represents one of the recurring elements of masonry as the concept of Hiram resurrected represents the reaching of enlightenment.
In our country, the large G is interpreted as the first letter of the acronym G. A.D. U. (Grande Architetto dell'Universo — Great Architect of the Universe), but in Anglo-Saxon countries the initial can be attributed to the word 'GOD', or the word 'geometry'.
The shaft is made of cherry-tree wood with a black point in ebony.

  • Fast delivery! Sadly the statue got damaged on the way, beyond repair. Very correct response from the seller, though! Who knows he can find me another and I will certainly do business with him again!

    Een snelle en verzorgde verzending van een opvallende doos. Hij is zeer aanwezig, ik moest hier even aan wennen, maar ik vind hem erg mooi en hij voegt zich prima in het interieur. Ik ben er blij mee.
