This is the first chair used by the Master of Duvall. It is no longer in use due to its delicate condition and historical value. The Master of a lodge would be the equivalent of the President of any other civic organization, the presiding officer that is elected annually. What makes this chair particular and relevant to the link to the to the Congressional Resolution is that it would have been in use during the time that our fraternity was laying the foundations that would eventually garner the Honor recently bestowed by Congress. Therefore, we have chosen to share this piece of Duvall history with the rest of the world.

Here's another view of the Masterís chair from the side. Notice the high back of the chair.

 

Together these chairs compose seats of the Principal Officers of a Master Masonís Lodge.

The symbols on the back of the Masterís chair are the Eye of Providence which alludes to Manís reliance upon God in all his undertakings, the Moon and the Sun. The Moon and the Sun have several symbolic explanations, the most applicable and obvious being the diurnal rotation of the earth about its axis and the Progression of Time.
