Item Details

19th Century Ebonised Masonic Worshipful Master’s Chair with Velvet Upholstery *PRICE INCLUDES DELIVERY COST TO ENGLAND & WALES. **DELIVERY TO SCOTLAND IS AN EXTRA COST - PLEASE MESSAGE US WITH YOUR POSTCODE FOR A DELIVERY QUOTE*

What a special find!

This Worshipful Master’s Masonic chair is in original as found condition with the most fabulous patina. The Worshipful Master is the head officer of a Freemasons Masonic Lodge and is the highest honour which any lodge can appoint one of its members.
This particular chair came from Minerva Lodge No.250 in Hull.
The chair is so well designed and aesthetically pleasing to the eye and the patination and wear especially on the arms is beautiful. The hand painted shield on the chair back is the symbol of the Worshipful Master. The original old faded black velvet upholstery all adds to the visual appeal and it’s story.
We also currently have three other Masonic chairs available (two Past Master chairs and a Junior Warden’s chair) – see separate listings.
The Minerva Lodge No.250 was founded in September 1782 and is the oldest surviving Masonic Lodge in the City of Kingston upon Hull and the third oldest in the Province of Yorkshire North & East Ridings.
The Masons originally met at the appropriately named 'Masons Arms' on Chapel Lane, Kingston upon Hull. In 1802 they moved to the Grade II* listed Minerva Masonic Hall which was one of the first ever purpose-built lodges in the Province.
