Early Delft Masonic Plate

with Working Tools

This early flow blue Masonic plate was made by the Delft factory in the Netherlands and signed on the back by the artist who hand-painted it .  It depicts the Square and Compasses in the Fellow Craft position on the front with Sprigs of Acacia.  This plate dates prior to the 1880's as the Letter "G" is within the Five-pointed Star.  It also pictures the pillars of Boaz and Jachin, the All-Seeing Eye within the radiant triangle and the unbroken chain of brotherly love and affection around the border.
