Antique Fraternal Painted Wooden Inspirational Platforms Fantastic Folk Art

Once in awhile you find a piece that tugs at your heartstrings because you know it had more meaning to the creator than ever could be imagined. These are fraternal platforms that were used to instill the 5 words that are the basis for most fraternal organizations.

Love, Hope, Friendship, Charity, Purity

They are made of wood and are all open on the bottom except for Charity, I don't know what that means. Hand lettered on two sides it would be interesting to hear their tales.

We found the platforms in a collection in Ohio and they are more than likely turn of the century (1900) pieces.

Their condition is very good with some paint wear.

The stack overall is 34 3/4" tall x 24" wide x 20" deep.

Love, Hope, Faith are 7" high x 20" wide x 15 3/4" deep. Charity is 5 5/8" high x 22 3/4" wide x 19" deep. Purity is 8 3/8" high x 24" wide x 20" deep.

We can easily safely ship these pieces, just ask for a quotation.
