Masonic Pillars and Altar Door Stop

This beautiful door stop was cast to display the inside of a Blue Lodge room with the Pillars of Boaz and Jachin, the Altar with the Three Great Lights (Holy Bible, Square and Compasses) opened on the top and the Three Lesser Lights (burning tapers) placed in a triangular position about the Altar.  The standing joke among Masonic collectors is that a pair of the above would be a set of bookends, but when you only have one it becomes a door stop!  In this case we only have the one!   It stands 5 1/4" tall, is made of lead, and is dated 1905. It can be found on page 124 of Monumental Miniatures, item number 841.
