Morton Commandery No. 4,

50th Anniversary Invitation

This is a wonderful old piece of collectible memorabilia!  It is a 4 x 6 inch pewter/tin invitation with a raised relief design.  It was found in its original box which is labeled "Morton Commandery New York".  The box and invitation are both in very good condition.  The invitation reads "Semi-Centennial of Morton Commandery No. 4, New York.  1823 - 1873.  Academy of Music, Monday Evening, December 22nd, 1873".  In the corner it reads "J.C. Webb, 77 Nassau St. NY".  In another corner it reads "Designed by W.F. Costenbader".  It is exceptionally well made with the raised relief image of the Sir Knights on their horses!.

A special "Thank You" to Sir Knight Richard Kerimoglu for sharing the images of this beautiful one-of-a-kind invitation with our museum.  Brother Richard is a Past Commander of Coeur De Lion Commandery No. 23 in New York City.  He was Knighted in Morton Commandery No 4. and is currently the Zone Commander of Zone 2 of the Grand Commandery of the state of New York.
