Hand-Painted Apron - History Edition: Masonic Apron of Meriwether Lewis - 18th Century
Product Id : 205675
Replica of a hand-painted apron owned by Meriwether Lewis. Meriwether Lewis’s Masonic apron is not only a historically significant artifact, it is also a beautiful piece of artful handiwork. Hand-painted symbols and emblems significant to Masonry embellish the hand-sewn silk apron. In times past, members wore their aprons to reveal Masonic affiliation while traveling in dangerous situations. Meriwether Lewis certainly followed this practice on the expedition, and was the first Mason to travel in Montana. Lewis was traveling along the dangerous Natchez Trace in Tennessee when he died of gunshot wounds under mysterious circumstances in 1809. Family members believed that the apron was in his breast pocket when he died.
