Masonic Scottish Rite Chart, Ca. 1840

Anglo-American Ca. 1840

Masonic Scottish Right chart printed on what appears to be silk. The framing was probably done around 1900.  The saw tooth and red border are printed directly on the fabric. A true survivor as silk does not age well unless  protected.

I had difficulty taking photos of it as it is under glass.

Normal wear, tears and discoloration from age. This could use professional conservation.

27.5" H X 30.2" W sight size, 34.25" H X 38.5" W frame size
