A collectable, and larger than usual, antique English Masonic ball fob, that opens to reveal a surprise. Expertly hand-fabricated in 9 karat rose gold, the ball in its closed position resembles a "ballot ball" used during Masonic voting. With a clever arrangement of hinges, which are barely perceptible from the exterior, when you release the four decorative latches the ball opens outward into the form of a cross. The cross interior is crafted of six base metal pyramids finished with a soft gilt and hand-engraved with numerous Masonic craft symbols. Ingeniously esoteric. About 7/8 inch closed, 2 1/4 inches by 1 5/8 inches open. Price adjusted due to a couple of small dents.
