Freemasons' Gold Fob, Hallmarked Chester, 1915

About

An antique gold fob depicting the symbolism of the Freemasons' movement: the square and compass. The fob measures 0.82" diameter overall and has been fashioned from an outer circle 1/16th of an inch wide and engraved with a scroll and hatched pattern. The centre of the fob displays the square and compass which are connected by a letter "G" which, in Freemason symbolism, represents God. The reverse shows some detailing of the square and compass with the gold outer circle remaining plain polished with the except of the hallmark of the Chester Assay Office for the year 1915. The makers' mark of W.O.D. is also present, this being the mark for William Oakley Davies working in Birmingham and first registered in 1896. A gold loop to the top enable the fob to be worn as a charm, pendant or, indeed, in its original purpose as a fob for the end of a watch chain.
