Description

As the title proclaims being offered is a vintage fraternal order Shiners Syria Red Fez hat provided by the old Troutman's Companies complete with black tassel & accessories In original box like new. It is in an A.E. Troutmans Co. Store. And, under the name A.E. Troutmans Co. is "Distinctive Appeal". Troutmans Co. In Greensburg, Pa, closed in the late 70's or early eighties when the Mall became the new way to shop.

In 1870 a group of Masons gathered frequently for lunch at the Knickerbocker Cottage on Sixth Avenue in New York City. At a special table on the second floor a particularly fun-loving group of men met regularly. Among the regulars were Walter M. Fleming, M.D. and William J. “Billy” Florence, an actor. The group frequently talked about starting a new fraternity for Masons – one centered on fun and fellowship, more than ritual. Fleming and Florence took this idea seriously enough to do something about it.

Billy Florence had been on tour in France, and had been invited to a party given by an Arabian diplomat. The exotic style, flavors and music of the Arabian-themed party inspired him to suggest this as a theme for the new fraternity. Walter Fleming, a devoted fraternity brother, built on Florence’s ideas and used his knowledge of fraternal ritual to transform the Arabian theme into the Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine (A.A.O.N.M.S.).

*****************************************************************************************

With the help of the Knickerbocker Cottage regulars, Fleming drafted the ritual, designed the emblem and costumes, formulated a salutation and declared that members would wear the red fez.. The first meeting of Mecca Shriners, the first temple (chapter) established in the United States, was held September 26, 1872. This Red Fez Hat and Red Pouch and a small black item are what were in the box. The latest this would be is early eighties but it could be a good bit older, it hard to say

The emblem on the front of the fez, the crescent and scimitar, is an important part of the fraternity’s theme, and is representative of the characteristics embodied by the Shriners. The scimitar stands for the backbone of the fraternity, its members. The two claws are for the Shriners fraternity and its philanthropy. The sphinx stands for the governing body of the Shriners.
The five-pointed star represents the thousands of children helped by the philanthropy each year.

Just let the pictures be your guide and I feel sure you won't be disappointed. The height size is 7-1/8" and it is in great condition. The hat was made by Lou Walt Corp. New York N.Y,
