This shallow old dish was probably used at Masonic lodge functions. The white restaurant chine is decorated in blue with a heavy line near the top edge and a thinner line near the bottom of the bowl. There are three Masonic references, the square, compass and letter “G” which represents Freemasonry, the inverted five point star of the Order of the Eastern Star and a keystone with the letters R A M which may be for Royal Arch Mason but I am not sure. This could have been used at Masonic banquets for serving a side dish like vegetables or macaroni & cheese or it may have been used more like a relish dish. The blue back stamp on the bottom reads; Buffalo China – 1926, which is probably an accurate date for this piece.
It measures almost 11” long by 5 5/8” wide by 2” high at the ends. It is in very good condition with good gloss, minor scuff wear and no damage.
