Two lots with masonic interest are offered for sale at the Grantham Auction Rooms on Wednesday 6th March 2013.
Lot 155 is a masonic medal for Lodge No. 4613. The lodge began in the early 1920s in Palestine and continued until political unrest forced the lodge to close in September 1954. The silver and enamel medal depicts George and the dragon and is engraved on the revered Bro. H Player.
The second item is Lot 16, a late Victorian silver tea kettle and stand by silversmiths William & George Sissons and dated London 1897. The tea kettle, which incorporates a burner, is engraved with two masonic symbols, and has an approximate weight of 50oz.
Grantham Saleroom Manager, Andrew Doubleday stated: "The medal for the Palestine lodge is very collectable as the lodge is no longer in existence. The tea kettle is a beautiful piece and might appeal to the masonic collector or a collector of quality silver pieces."
