1890 Freemason Masonic Lodge Member Diploma Certificate Parchment Print Ring C4 For Sale
The2FunAdGuyz offer a new, high quality reproduction print of a magnificent and richly designed, 1890 Masonic Diploma used by late 1800s Masonic Lodges to record the life and death of a member. Lithographic companies printed these ornate emblematic certificates and sold them either to individual members or to the lodges. They contained both Masonic symbols (including many found on Masonic rings) and traditional art icons of the era. The personal information lines were left blank until the member achieved the appropriate degrees. The images and art are sure to intrigue Masonic researchers and interested parties since they give a view of the Masonic Lodges of the late 1800s.
Note: This print is printed a golden, parchment-like paper for those people who wish to use this certificate to memorialize a Masonic member's life. We have the exact same certificate on a 100 # Glossy paper, but that paper does not absorb calligraphy ink as well as this special paper. This version is best for use for a creating a personalized memorial certificate.
With this parchment edition, we include a set of simple suggestions for you to use when personalizing the document. We also send a sample of paper to practice with prior to filling in the record. Please note that while we have a return policy for unmarked items (see return policy), we cannot accept returns on documents that have writing or markings on them.
