Ever-Ready Masonic Safety
This nickel plated over brass safety razor and its beautiful
carrying case was most-likely a Masonic presentation gift from an outgoing
Worshipful Master to his Junior Officers and/or members of his Lodge.
It is common practice for Freemasons to give tokens or gifts to those Brethren
who helped, aided and assisted the WM during his tenure in the East. This
safety razor is made by the Ever-Ready company.
We think that during the 20's
and 30's the Ever-Ready company were doing runs of their production
razors such as this for clubs, fraternities and sports teams in small batches, so I'd
guess a local lodge had it commissioned, unfortunately there is no lodge
name or number listed.
A special "Thank
you" to Bro. David Connelly.Canberra, Australia, Lodge Capitol No.612 for
submitting the pictures and text of this beautiful presentation piece!
