Two ceremonial wooden beehive topped staff from the IOOF (International Order of Odd Fellows) that are attributed to the Beresford SD lodge, ca. 1920's. The beehive is one of the symbols used by both the Odd Fellows and the Masons and signifies prosperity and the rewards of hard work.
The carved beehive tops measure about 2.5" long. The red staff with the top is 60" long and the pink one is 64" long.
Both pieces are in good vintage condition. There is wear to the paint on the shafts which is nothing unusual given the age and use. They are nice piece of authentic early American folk art. Perfect for the collector of the lodge memorabilia or someone looking for a nice graphic display pieces.
