This is an incredibly rare item--i've searched for these for years and finally found one, but my bf is not fond of it, so I'm offering it up here.

The condition is not perfect, but I've seen ones in better condition sell for $4000, so this is a bargain. Some of the paper is coming away from the linen (any spots with white are the off-white linen, not full-on holes), and there are cracks here and there throughout.

Just the same, this is an over 100 year old poster used in an oddfellows lodge. This chart covers, I believe, a sequence of orders or levels met by members. It's instructional and aspirational.

It was printed by A. Hoen & Co in Baltimore, MD. I believe it is a chromolithograph. It has brass-plated metal strips at the top and bottom. It still has its brass grommets for hanging. Even so, I would recommend framing this properly. I have seen one of these online, in an archival frame job, for mid-four figures. (google "oddfellows chart" and you can see it too).

Either way, it's a stunning piece of art you may never see again.

size: 26" by 39.5". (.66m by 1 meter)

let me know if you need more pictures. The background is gold, not brown.
