    This beautiful antique (Circa 1895) 10K gold & enameled pin was made by the renowned "Irons and Russell" Co. of Providence RI. This pin features a crescent moon surrounding the Square & Compass. The moon makes this a Lunar Lodge pin.

    Before the advent of electric lights many lodges met every month on the night of each month's full moon. This was done to allow the members to travel by the light of the full moon and thereby ensure the safest travel time. This was especially important for lodges outside of major cities. Lodges that followed this meeting schedule were termed "Lunar Lodges". A few lodges still carry on this tradition even today.
