Rare English Early 20th Century Hand Carved Masonic Arch

We share what we love, and we love this rare and unusual example of an early 20th century Royal Masons Arch. Inscribed with the Latin phrase “FIAT LUX” meaning let there be light. Light being the symbol of knowledge and truth. Hand carved wooden sections that fit individually to make the words displayed. Hand painted marble effect with gold gilt carved double sided letters. This item may likely have been placed over a doorway or shelf.
