Vintage IOOF Rebekah staff topper, beehive shaped (c 1920s)
This vintage bee hive-shaped staff topper was once the finial on an IOOF Odd Fellows Rebekah ceremonial piece. It was acquired when the contents of the Odd Fellows/Rebekah Lodge in Beresford SD which closed in the 1920s were auctioned off. The staff/flag pole is long gone so the top has been mounted on a piece of wood to display.
The topper measures 5" tall x 2.5" at the widest part. The new wooden base is 3" square.
Made of impressed pot metal, 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.
