Thanks for reading our blog. I agree that the crossed keys symbol on this apron is nicely done. I'm not sure what you mean about the Past Master. Please feel free to comment again if you have a question that we can answer. Aimee Newell, Director of Collections


symbol of cross key is good and he became pastmaster.

Hi: Thanks so much for reading our blog and commenting. Harding Uniform and Regalia Company was active in Boston from at least the 1910s (maybe earlier) to the 1940s. We are fortunate to have a number of items that they made and sold in our collection. The jacket you have sounds interesting. Unfortunately, ethics prevent me from commenting on the value of antiques; please see the post I wrote on that topic here on our blog. Thanks again for sharing the information about your jacket!

I have an Iriquois embellished jacket from about 1890 from harding uniform and regalia company. Can you tell me any history? It ws found in a Maine Redmans Lodge. All beads are there and the material (tan canvas?) is in amazing shape. What might this item be valued at. Even the wonderful belt is with this jacket.
