We have for sale a wooden sign for the International Order of Red Mae. This is some sort of lodge sign for Lodge 49. The sign appears to have been some sort of sign which kept track of 12 items, things or rituals. The bottom section is numbered from 1 to 12 and there are holes in the board across the bottom that correspond to the 12 numbers.
There are wonderful features on this sign, a patriotic shield, crossed items, cups etc. Each letter number or emblem is a separate piece of wood that has been applied to the base board. each letter has separate paint applied to dress them up.
The sign is 17 1/2" wide x 24 1/2" tall and is made to hang on a wall.
Lodge 49 is located in Belleville near St. Louis.
