Hi, My name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you. Yes Kenning was a Freemason himself. Kenning realised the potential of the market: he not only manufactured the costume but sold a range of products from his shops across Britain. He set up a mail order business which operated across the British Empire and was keen to develop new markets in the USA. He became a media magnate and advertised in his own widely read newspaper: The Freemason He even extended the brand by becoming closely involved in developing new Masonic orders all of which needed special costumes and props. The piece would date from 1900 to 1905. This mark was used (1895-1937). I hope this helps you.
