Masonic Ring

Recommended Posts

Eric,

As Mike said, it is a great ring, but no indication of a Masonic connection. I'm familiar with a lot of the US fraternal insignia, symbols, etc., and I can't recall any significant use of a dragon by any of them. And I can't speak for other Blue Lodges, but mine never had an "enforcer", unless it was the brother who taught me my degree work. :banger::D

thank you for the insights, gentlemen!

my uncle told me the creature on the side of the ring was a serpent. he said that it had something to do with asia during the turn of the century.

anyhow, i have a few further masonic items somewhere (all related to seattle from the 1890s thru the 1930s) and will post them as they turn up.

:cheers:

Eric,

Your mention of Seattle may be a clue to the ring. The "animal" design is similar to some of the Native American designs I have seen in use in the Seattle area. (Used to live out there) Plus, with the letter "S", this might be a school ring. Any Seattle school grads on the forum???

hi guys,

just a follow-up on that ring. i was discussing it with a relative a while back, and just the other day a different relative gave me this additional ring that belonged to the same great-uncle. seems my uncle had an affinity for dragons!

a nice veteran's ring:
