Vintage IOOF Odd Fellows Lodge ceremonial staff, fancy metal tip (c 1920s)
Ceremonial red painted wooden, tin topped staff from the IOOF (International Order of Odd Fellows). Attributed to the Beresford SD lodge, ca. 1920's. The staff measures 70" long which includes the 12" embossed tin arrow top. We've chosen to leave it as-found but the arrow top could be detached from the shaft for ease in displaying.
Good vintage condition. Some oxidation and wear to the tin top and the paint on the shaft. Nothing unusual given its age and use.
This is an nice piece of authentic early American folk art. Perfect for the collector of the lodge memorabilia or someone looking for a nice graphic display piece.
