1901 Folk Art Masonic Temple Gavel
is a well executed piece of Folk Art carved to look like a
Masonic Temple. The working tools, three Great Lights, Tyler's Sword and
the Past Masters emblem are all finely carved and detailed on each side. The
body or head of the gavel is carved from one solid piece of walnut! Notice
how well done the pillars are! The top is a separate piece attached with
screws and has the carved initials "B.J.W." - "G.M.M.S.C."
- "W.M.J.L." and the date, "1901." The detail is
terrific! It does have a small chip broken out of the base from having
been used. It measures 3 1/2 inches wide by 2 1/2 inches high and 2 3/4
inches deep, overall it is 12 1/2 inches long which includes the handle.
