The Victorian member’s jewel, circa 1880, for Lodge St. Patrick No. 295, Irish Constitution.
Lodge St. Patrick was formed in 1758 and warranted in the 4th Royal Irish Dragoon Guards
as a travelling lodge. It is the oldest Travelling Lodge in the world.
The jewel has passed through many hands and has the date 1934 scratched on the back
although the jewel is Victorian and clearly much older than 1934.
A very scarce jewel.
Bronze and enamel.
