A Pair of Pewter Sceptres

Probably French

Late 19th/Early 20th Century

These sceptres represent the sun and crescent moon and one conjectures that they may have been made for Masonic use. The sun and moon have throughout human history been deemed to have mystical importance and in the Bible, in Genesis l : 14-19, we are told that on the fourth day of creation "God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night". Later in Medieval Europe with the study of Alchemy, symbols became extensively used to protect the secret formulae of the methods of turning base metals into gold and silver and it was at this time that Alchemists designed the stylised images of both the sun and moon with human faces.
