Antique Small Book of Psalms with Handmade Leather Decorated Cover Rose Cross Masons Rosicrucians:
On June 1, 1905, Heline gave this little psalm book to Belle. We can only guess that Heline is the one who made and decorated the little leather cover…
The cover is of a soft thin piece of leather, decorated in a simple, elegant, wooden cross with a pink rose with green leaves in the center.
The Rosy Cross or Rose Cross is the major symbol of groups such as the Ancient and Mystical Order Rosae Crucis, Rosicrucian Order (Societas Rosicruciana), Aleister Crowley and Ordo Templi Orientis, Fellowship of the Rosy Cross, and Masonic groups like the Freemasons. Could this have belonged to someone in a secret society? Who can tell?
