Non-Prince Hall Eastern Star Chapters aren’t known for their wearing of fezzes. In fact, this might be one of the very few that we’ve ever seen. The picture makes the fez look like it is in much better condition than it actually is. It is quite soiled and pitted, with a couple of moth holes. But, because of its unusual nature, we wanted it for the collection. The tassel is also worn, being yellow, but missing the top knot. The fez states that it came from Providence Chapter No. 1 Patrol, most likely of Rhode Island. The fez likely dates from the 19-teens to the 1930’s.
