EXCEPTIONALLY RARE SET OF HAND CARVED ANTIQUE ODD FELLOWS LODGE I. ITEMS Used by Forest Lodge #148, Hyde Park, Mass.This is an exceptionally rare and unique set of I. F items used during the late 19th century by the Forest Lodge #148. Could be as early as 1870 from the appearance.
And the meaning of these, but obviously collectors and members will be. Apparently they were used in some manner in their ceremonies. There is quite a variety of things, from a tent, weapons & tools, sun, moon, and stars, a bird, a horse, skull, letters, tablet, etc. 33 different ones in all. PAINSTAKENLY AND LOVINGLY HAND CARVED FROM WOOD.
They vary in size from about 3" x 3" for the tent to about 1" tall for the "F, T, and L letters. THIS IS AN AMAZING SET FOR ANY SERIOUS ANTIQUE COLLECTION OF I. FRATERNAL ORGANIZATIONS IN GENERAL, AND EVEN HYDE PARK, MASS. These are in excellent condition.
A very nice, unusual original I. I have never seen anything like it, and you will not get many chances to get something as fine. Conceivably only one set of these per lodge, and these are from the heyday of the ODD FELLOWS organization.
