Ceremonial “Odd Fellows” collar. Raised work mostly gold-colored and some silver-colored metal purl on a blue cut velvet ground. A roughly rectangular band to be worn around the neck with the end covering the chest. The design: on each end, band is a long vertical stalk with stylized leaves, flowers, and grape bunches. Joining these ends is a button with a five-pointed star motive. Three interlocking circles at the center (worn behind the neck). Metal purl fringe. Very good condition.
