Various Masonic Trowels

  

This trowel has an ivory handle and sterling silver blade.  It measures 9 1/2 X 3 inches.

The Trowel is an instrument made use of by Operative Masons to spread the cement which unites the building into one common mass; but we as Free & Accepted Masons are taught to use it for the more noble and glorious purpose of spreading the cement of Brotherly Love and Affection; that cement which unites us into one common band, or society of friends and brothers, among whom no contention should ever exist, but that noble contention, or rather emulation, of who best can work and best agree.

The above trowel was submitted By Brother Harris J.Goldstein, Jr. Warden, Ocean Lodge No. 89 F&AM, Spring Lake Hts, NJ
