True Master's Chair
Here is an
interesting sterling silver spoon. It is Masonic with a beautifully done
Letter "G" at the top of the spoon handle with nicely done bead
work. The handle has the square and compasses with a trowel and says Alexander-Washington
Lodge No. 22 Va. on the handle. In the spoon bowl is the "True Master's Chair" in a raised
relief design. At the top of the chair it says "Geo.
Washington". At the bottom
of the chair it says "Master 1788". The back of the handle says:
"Copyrighted Alex, Washn 22." It is marked "sterling" with a three letter hallmark
that is difficult to make out but I believe was made by Geo. E. Homer. The spoon is 4" long
with normal wear.
Here is where the True Master's
Chair resides... In the East of the Replica Room at Alexandria - Washington
Lodge No. 22 located in the George Washington National Masonic Memorial.
