Odd Fellows Mask
The Odd Fellows Lodge is famous for using masquerade in their secret ceremonies. They used these mesh masks in the late 1800s-1920s during initiation ceremonies. Every member (except the initiant) would wear a mask, yet these weren’t meant to disguise the members, but to add to the ceremony (the initiate was blindfolded throughout the ceremony, unable to see the members around him).
largely intact and all original early 20th century antique american metal wire oddfellows ceremonial costume face mask, likely fabricated by the demoulin bros., co., greenville, il. the eerie metal mesh mask features hand-painted facial features which are faded (e.g., mustache, eyes, etc.) applied directly to the wire. the head strap appears original to the mask. a light gauge band of steel is used around the edges to uphold structural integrity. this type of fraternal mask was advertised as being highly desirable during summer months
