We’re not dead yet! Really though, we’ve just been busy here at the Museum of Fezology with real life. Our collecting continues and remains active, with nearly 200 fezzes in the collection today (some of which aren’t even posted to this site!)
To remedy that, we’ve got four new updates for you to check out today. Let’s take a look!
We’ll start in the Odd Fellows Social Groups exhibit, where we’ve added an old Ufa Sanctorum fez. This is a nice piece from a very unstable time in the history of the organization, so it’s definitely worth checking out.
Next up is a Sciots Past Toparch fez from the 1950’s. While it’s not terribly old or different, it is a nice fez and bridges a time gap in our collection.
Then, we added an old Grotto fez from Cheliminar Sanctorum in Yakima, WA. It features what we fondly refer to as the “South Park Mokanna” on the front in metal.
Lastly, we have a completely new and altogether rare organization fez for the collection. We’ve got our mits on a Fraternal Order of Orioles fez over in the Animal Lodges exhibit. The Orioles have been around since the early 1900’s, but weren’t known to be fez wearers, making this a really unique piece.
Until next time fezmigos!
