One of the most famous Friendly Societies in the Commonwealth, Odd Fellows is an international fraternity consisting of lodges first documented in 1730 in London. Both modern Freemasonry and the Odd Fellows came into existence around the same time, the 18th century, and both came from the workers guilds. However, unlike the Freemasons that put emphasis on self-improvement, the Odd Fellowship prioritised doing good works in the community. Very good antique condition. Small chip to base; crazing commensurate with age; some loss to the transfer print. Please carefully regard all photos. Item will be sent fully tracked and insured.
