Masonic 'FOUNDER' Jewel

Recommended Posts

Hello, I recently acquired a 'Founder' Jewel for my collection (photo attached) but I am not able to identify it fully. It would appear to be of Royal Arch Identity but no clues as to where or its origin except for the Cornucopia - references to 'steward' perhaps?. Any information would be gratefully received.

That's a craft founders jewel. Given the red ribbon and the cornucopia, it's probable that it comes from a Provincial Grand Steward's Lodge - Grand and Provincial Grand Stewards are the only ones permitted to wear red.

Where did you acquire it from?

Hello Sontaran,

Thank you for your prompt response. This item was discovered in a suitcase of Masonic Aprons, Collarettes etc that one one of my Sons purchased about two yers ago at a local Car Boot Fair. He has only recently passed these to me. I am 85 years of age and a PM - Initiated in 1971. There is a Red Apron with the Collection which reflects your observations, having an embroidered circular Badge Logo with the lettering 'MIDDLESEX' and a Cornucopia overlying a set of Compasses within the circle. A matching red Collarette has a similar 'gold' logo on its Jewel with the same lettering - beautiful.
