Gentlemen, I present the very rare ILLUSTRATED CATALOGUE OF MASONIC CLOTHING, JEWELS, ETC., published in 1915 by the prestigious London firm of George Kenning & Son.
George Kenning was one of Great Britain’s foremost Free Masons in the latter half of the 19th century. In addition to being a leading manufacturer of uniforms and regalia, Kenning published a weekly Freemason Newspaper, along with such Masonic books as the Freemasons Calendar and Pocket Book, the Cosmopolitan Masonic Calendar, the Master Masons Handbook, and Kennings Cyclopaedia of Freemasonry.
This rare 1915 Kenning’s catalog offers a fascinating inventory of Masonic accoutrements from a century ago: robes, aprons, jewelry, charms, cases, candles, swords, souvenirs, banners, regalia, furniture for the lodge and so much more. There are items tailored to the various rituals, degrees and individual needs, including:

Masonic Printing and Publications
The first 28 pages of Kenning’s 1915 ILLUSTRATED CATALOGUE OF MASONIC CLOTHING, JEWELS, ETC. are printed in bold, brilliant full-color, with gilt and silver embellishments. There are also numerous halftone illustrations and photographs of the Kenning offices and manufacturing facilities.
The catalogue is such a beautiful production that the publishers implore customers not to destroy or alter it: Customer are earnestly requested not to cut the catalogue. It is only necessary when ordering to give Number and quantity quoting the Edition.
Very few of Kenning’s Masonic catalogs have survived to the present day. It may be years before you see another – if you see another. This is a piece that any serious collector of Masonic items will wish to add to his own personal library.
