This lovely old plate is a souvenir piece featuring Josephine in the center. It is a flattering image of the bejeweled French Empress, first wife of Napoleon I. Above her it reads; Pittsburgh Commandery No1 K.T. and below her is the following information; Twenty-Eighth Triennial - Louisville-1901-Kentucky. This was apparently an historical event with more than 30,000 freemasonry members attending the conclave. The plate has a white porcelain ground and a rich, cobalt blue wide boarder which is embellished and trimmed with gold. On the back it is marked; Knowles-Taylor-Knowles - Semi-Vitreous Porcelain - East Liverpool - Ohio, U.S.A..
It measures about 8” in diameter and is in good condition with minimal wear and no damage. The gold is worn in a few places.
