Antique Masonic Chair – Where Is It?
Both of my Antique Archaeology shops, in Leclaire, Iowa & in Nashville, still get tons of emails asking about the Masonic Chair sold to JesseLee a few seasons ago American Pickers. He is a Mason and a preserver of traditional country music (he owns Robert’s Western World downtown Nashville) and we knew we’d found the perfect buyer for the piece – which is a big part of what we do. I followed up with him and asked how it was working out in his new home, and here’s what he had to say:
“The response has been amazing. Although I have not watched the episode myself, I have had a lot of friends and family from all parts of the world contact me to tell me they saw me on the show. People I haven’t talked to in years. I’ve been reunited with a lot of people. I have also had brother Masons contact me to speak at local lodges about the show and my experience. Several people have contacted me letting me know they have more history on the chair, so I’m interested in getting that too. I was drawn to the item because of its history. I am a 32nd degree Mason myself and it brings a special touch of history and meaning to my home. It fits right in with my decor. I plan on keeping the chair. If it were ever to leave my home it will go back into a lodge of my choice to preserve its history.”
See ya on the backroads!
