During the early 1900's glass souvenir items were created for gifts for the delegates that attended annual conventions. This wonderful ruby flashed liquor glass is from the Syria Temple in Pittsburgh, PA and was a souvenir from it's 1908 St Paul, Minn convention. The glass measures 5 1/4" in height. It shows the Shriner International logo and a pair of scimitar as handles. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; minor decoration wear. Great combination of ruby flashed glass with gold, silver, white and black enameling. Scarce fraternal item.
