Knights of Pythias Certificate - Vintage Art Print - Victorian Antique Document - 1800's Americana - Curiosities - Oddities - Paper Ephemera
The Knights of Pythias is a fraternal "secret society" founded at Washington, DC in 1864 by Justus H. Rathbone, and was the first fraternal order to be chartered by an Act of Congress. The Order was inspired by the Greek legend of Damon and Pythius surrounding the Pythagorean ideals of loyalty, honor and friendship, and today are a charitable organization dedicated to the cause of universal peace.
This membership certificate was bestowed upon those initiated into the Order of the Knights of Pythias during the Victorian period. The certificate is surrounded with illustrations depicting knights practicing in a large hall, participating in a ceremony, and releasing a person from bondage. It is captioned with the distinguishing principles of Friendship, Charity, and Benevolence.
This print is a highly detailed scan of the original published plate and is truly an amazing image perfect for framing!
This image has been digitally retouched and repaired as necessary, while leaving the foxing, wear, and creases that lend to the intrigue of these old works. This giclee quality art is printed on heavyweight matte archival / acid-free museum quality stock with lightfast inks rated 100+ years. No watermark will appear on your print. The artwork is printed with a surrounding white margin (included in print size) to aid in framing/matting the print. Your purchase will ship priority mail (US) in a protective kraft tube made from 70-100% post-consumer recycled content and up to 30% secondary recycled content.
Given the nature of vintage artwork created before the standardization of print and frame sizes, this item may not conform exactly to the dimensions you choose. To allow for the odd sizing of these images they are printed approximately 2 inches smaller than the paper they are on. This way you receive a standard size, with a white surrounding border that allows for easy framing, with or without a matte.
