Lighted Sign from an Order of the Eastern Star Lodge dated 1921

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

An unusual multi-colored and white glass faced Order of the Eastern Star Lodge sign. A rare example manufactured by C. A. Homan of St. Louis, Missouri and patented in 1921. The lamp is in excellent vintage condition and makes a most unusual lamp or lighting fixture.
The glass inserts that create the star and its surround are cut from either pebbled or smooth opalescent glass.
There are 15 light sockets mounted in the interior of this lighted sign and a much lower wattage than what is pictured here would make it glow.
The dated manufacturer's brass plate is attached to an upper side of the sign.
