#SIGN112 - Rare Early B.P.O.Elks Paper Flag on Pin

Vintage 2" wide paper flag on metal pin for the B.P.O.Elks. The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks (also known as the Elks Lodge or simply The Elks) is to this day one of the largest fraternal orders in the United States with around a million current members. It was formed as a fraternal order and social club in 1868 and has a lot of rituals, traditions, and regalia that is very simllar to the Freemasons.  It was a boys only club until recent years, and many lodges are still men only. They sponsored an insurance fund in the 1800s that was banned in 1907 when the money was mismanaged. Since then it has been a social club that has donated to many charities. These flags are very early and came out of a factory that made silks and flags many years ago. Based on the master boxes, I'd say they are from the early 1900s. As far as we can tell, these are the only examples known.  They say "B.P.O.Elks" and have the society Elk logo on them. The flags are paper with some aging, and the pins have a little light rust, but are in amazing condition for their age. There was not a big bunch of these found and we have all of them.

Vintage 5 1/2" tall Travelers Protective Association silk. The Travelers Protective Association was establish in June of 1882 in Bellfontaine, Ohio to gain concessions from hotels, railroads and transportation agencies if a member had a grievance.  They were not considered a union, but were registered as a fraternal benefit society. These are very early and came out of a factory that made silks and flags many years ago.

They are made from the same cloth as cigarette silks, but are larger. They may have been hung on wooden sticks as flags. There was not a big bunch of these found and we have all of them, so we would suggest ordering early as they likely won't be around long.

#BEADS0202 - Group of 10 Very Old Shiny Emerald Colored Venetian Tube Bead
You get 10 for 80¢ (that's 8¢ each). Vintage 26mm (1 inch) long thin four sided emerald colored shiny Venetian tube beads. These are incredible. Still brightly colored and found in unopened wrapping. They are from the early 1900s. Most of the early Venetian beads are very small. These are really long and very useful for making things.

Here's the incredible story. In 1898, the Societa Veneziana Conterie Consortium was formed. It was a group of 16 bead makers who put their beads in one place so they could be sold by one sales force. Some of the stock was old when it came there in 1898 (these are those)! In recent times, the consortium was dissolved and the remaining 400,000 plus pounds of beads were sold to an American Indian Trading post. We were able to get ahold of a good quantity of the oldest types (the wrapping confirms the are pre WWI). All were made between the 1800s and 1920. They are an incredible bargain.

#ZZZ086 - Early and Very Rare Eisemann Barber Supply Letterhead

As you would expect,the paper shows some minor paper aging. Phil Eisemann was one of the premier barber suppliers in the country in the early 1900s. Eisemann signs and bottles are high dollar items for the collector. This letterhead is extremely rare. We bought the lot from a collector who had bought them with a bunch of high end Eisemann's signs.
