Antique Victorian Heavy Masonic Firing Glass Etched Motif for Salopian Lodge (Code 2586)
A Victorian period heavy masonic firing glass. These glasses were used for rounds of toasting, the bases were heavy to stand up to being wrapped on the table. The noise made by banging the glasses on the table earned them the name of 'firing glass', the sound being compared to musket fire. This example is of very good quality glass and the pontil scar and underside have been entirely polished.
The glass is etched with the traditional set square and compasses motif and opposite is the lodge number, which is for the Salopian lodge in Shrewsbury.
Very good for period with just minor wear and slight signs of use.
