A Past Master's Masonic Lodge Jewel from the Garfield Lodge #569, F&AM, and dated Jan.4, 1824. This lodge was chartered in 1884 in Hammond, Indiana, but in recent years seems to have moved to nearby Highland, Indiana. The jewel bears the name of Henry A. Ford, the past master to whom the piece was awarded. This lodge jewel is marked 14K along with the maker's mark "J.C.L., for John C. Leppert, a manufacturing jeweler in Chicago. The "G" and the square are decorated with blue enamel work, and a sapphire sits above the compass. The jewel measures three and one-half inches from top to bottom and weighs about one ounce troy. Condition is excellent and the piece remains in original presentation case with Leppert's logo on one flap.
