A Hot Fez Update

plateofezzesToday is one of the hottest days of the summer in the Northeast. This gave us the needed to time to spend a day in air conditioning and updating the Museum! We’re happy to bring you three updates, all in some smaller categories.

We start with a Fraternal Order of Eagles fez, hailing from Spokane Aerie No. 2. It’s a more recent piece, but comes from a group not known for wearing fezzes, making it a unique addition.

Next up, we have a “small” addition to the collection in the form of an Abadan Grotto Ladies Auxiliary fez. This hat is positively tiny, perfect for the ladies that probably wore it.

Last up is a new Independent Order of Odd Fellows Encampment fez. This new addition is embroired in multiple colors and is quite old, so check it out!

We hope that you enjoy this round of updates. As always, we continue to look for additions to the collection to bring to you!

  • We’ve added a new fez to the Charitable Groups section, detailing a little known African American Fraternal body call the Lily White Security Benevolent Association.
  • The Maccabees, one of the most well known fraternal bodies of the 20th Century weren’t known for wearing fezzes, but, thanks to a donation, we have one!
  • The Sons of the Desert, deveoted to comedians Laurel and Hardy, are a great fez wearing social body for fans.
  • Recently revived, we bring you a fez from the Noble Order of Muscovites.

February Fez Update

funny-fun-lol-cats-wearing-fez-pics-images-photos-pictures-bajiroo-6Things have been pretty quiet around the Fez Museum as of late, but we have been picking up pieces as time and money allow.

This update sees three new fezzes in our Odd Fellows area, covering the Imperial Order of Muscovites, the Pilgrim Knights of Oriental Splendor, and the Ladies of the Orient.

We’ve also added two fezzes to our Masonic related organizations collection, with a Past Monarch’s fez from Avalon Grotto and a member’s fez from Osiris Shriners.

Enjoy the update and be sure to check back for more!

Well then, an update!

Mayor richard daley in fezWhile we had planned to do an update much sooner, rather than the current state of later, we’ve finally added some new pieces to the collection worth noting.

A rare find indeed, we’ve added a Supreme Treasurer’s fez to our AHEPA exihibit. Following that, check out the new Kolo Sanctorum in our AMOS area. Lastly, we wrap up this update with a Yedz fez over in our Grotto area.

As always, we continue our search for new and unique fezzes, so feel free to contact us if you have something strange that you are looking to part with!

Updates Galore!

25480981aad98f9bd7206b73a69d9648As you can see, over the summer we’ve updated the look and feel of the Museum of Fezology. We hope you enjoy it and find it easier to navigate and use! During the update, we also added several new displays to the collection.

First up, we have five new fezzes in the Grotto and Related area, including an older Grotto fez and a complete set of Daughters of Mokanna fezzes, including a Past Supreme Mighty Chosen One fez, generously donated by the Supreme Caldron of the organization.

We’ve added another piece to the Occupational Groups exhibit, with a Pennslvania Shield and Square Club fez, used by law enforcement and protective services members that were also Freemasons.

Another fez was added to the Sciots exhibit, hailing from New Jersey Pyramid No. 1. During the summer, the Curator the Museum became a member of New Jersey Pyramid No. 3, but was given a No. 1 fez, as no No. 3 fezzes were available in his size.

Another example of a Past High Priestess’s fez was added to the Shrine Ladies area, coming from Neptune Court in New Jersey.

Lastly, we have a brand new exhibit dedicated to the Princes of Bagdad, a side body to the Ancient and Illustrious Order of the Knights of Malta.

We have a couple of fezzes on their weay to the museum now, so we hope to update again in the very near future.
