1920s Eastern Star Masonic Illuminated Reverse Painting on Glass Temple Sign

$ 6,000
  • Description
    Rare tin sign with a reverse painting on glass ritual star for the Eastern Star of the Masonic Temple.
    I believe the sign dates from the 1920s.
    Comprised of 15 separate compartmented back lights controlled by a switch box of 15 individual light switches which during Mason ceremonies allowed specific images on the sign to be illuminated .
    The sign is mounted on a removable metal pipe stand that rolls on wooden wheels
    It would be fairly easy to turn this into a wall hung art work.
    The sign overall is in good vintage condition with minor age issues. The most pronounced is image #11.
