c. 1840 Spectacular Masonic Apron Hand-Painted On Silk The Best Quality Masonic Apron Seen

c. 1840, Superb Ornate Hand-Painted Silk Masonic Apron with Fringe, Housed in a Custom Plexiglas Frame, Choice Near Mint.

This original, full size and colorful 18" x 17" Masonic Apron is made from brilliant crimson red Silk background with a beautiful multicolor Hand-Painted devices. It is remarkable and highly unusual, with a fabulous scene of an Native American Indian offering his Peace Pipe to a White Man, dressed in his claw hammer coat and stove top beaver hat (who looks remarkably like Abraham Lincoln but is not), with a teepee in a stand of trees in the woods behind them. Traditional typical Masonic symbols are present including; a Sun, Crescent Moon and Seven Stars, the All Seeing Eye, Justice Scales, Clasped Hands, and a Laurel Wreath are all present, being hand-painted in bright gold gilt. There is an impressive braided border in blue and white thread, with the apron and bib having dark forest green fringe.

This Masonic apron remains in superb original condition. It has no tears, no stains or defects and only a few tiny areas of paint loss on creases that do not distract. This extraordinary specimen has been professionally and archivally mounted on linen within a valuable custom made thin box frame made out of protective Plexiglas on its front and all four sides for viewing. This spectacular Hand-Painted On Silk Masonic Apron is the single finest design and Masonic item in general, that we have ever encountered. It is absolutely unique in its design, of museum quality in its extraordinary state of preservation, and is ready for immediate and prominent display. (Ex: Rex Stark Americana Catalog 2003.)
