This is a much sought after Masonic jewel to mark the Consecratation of Builders of The Silent Cities Lodge No 4948 U.G.L.E., which was founded in 1927 in London. The jewel is silver gilt and enamel and is hall-marked London 1927, and this particular example was presented to the Foundation Senior Warden in this new Lodge.
The Lodge was founded in 1927 and many of the Foundation Members were on the staff of the W.W.1. War Graves Commission. Rudyard Kipling was one of the Founder Members of this Lodge.
