Table still life with Shriner's Fez.   Circa 1880: by Harriet A.E. Jackson (Mrs. John Browning), 19th century, British. Oil on Canvas, 7 x 10 inches, signed lower right.   Paintings on Masonic themes are quite rare and few have been painted by trained and skilled artists as has this. The frame is the original, 2 inch wide, dark oak, Arts and Crafts period. (The Frame is not shown)   Ms. Jackson is listed in Benezit as a painter of historical subjects. The detail work in this painting is meticulous, (the object in the foreground is a lit cigar) and the fez is particularly appealing.
