Whether you are a Freemason yourself or you just like the Order, the Freemason Sword Set with Display Plaque will suit your aesthetic and taste. This Freemason sword set includes two swords and a display plaque. Each decorative Masonic sword has a 420 stainless steel, double-edged blade.
The swords continue with highly detailed, cruciform crossguards. The gold-colored zinc alloy guards have ornate detailing, which includes scrollwork and faces on the ends of the quillons. There are smaller medallions in the middle of the arms and larger ones in the very center of the guards. These center medallions depict the Masonic compass and square next to a sun and moon.
The hilt of each sword continues with a barrel-shaped grip that has multiple sections of blue velveteen. There are ridged spacers at each end of the grips. The golden hilts end with round pommels. In the center of each one is a gray design featuring a star interwoven with the letter G.
Finally, this Masonic sword set comes with a detailed wooden plaque. The shield-shaped wall plaque holds the swords with a bronzed, circular medallion. It depicts the compass and square design with a G in the center. To each side of the medallion is a globe on a column.
Above the medallion is the Eye of Providence, or an eye inside of a triangle with rays of light shining out. Below is an open book. This striking medieval sword set makes a great piece of Masonic home decor. It also fits in with any Freemason collection.
Freemason History and Background
The Freemasons are a fraternal order with origins that stretch back to the 13th century. They originated out of the guilds of stonemasons. Today, they have two main sects or groups, Regular Freemasons and Continental Freemasons. The Regular Freemasons have more restrictions upon the people allowed into the order.
Due to the orders secretive nature, they tend to star in various conspiracy theories. The compass and square design is one of their most recognizable symbols along with the Eye of Providence.
