|Subject: Hanselmann Commandery plate
Dear Sir Knights,
My name is Dave France,
I am the standard bearer for St. Simon of Cyrene Commandery No. 9, K.T., in
Our Warder, Bro. Carl
Graham, has a porcelin plate that says it was "presented by Hanselmann Commandery No.
16, K.T., Cinncinnati, OH" and he was wondering if you might be able to provide any
information about the plate
(when it might have been issued/presented, what the occasion was, etc...)
The plate is about 8 in diameter, and features a
Square & Compass (at 12:00),
a Cross of Malta (at 3:00) with "Hanselmann Commandery No. 16" written
below in red,
a chapeau (with a red cross in it) & sword (at 5:00),
a cross & crown (at 7:00), and
a keystone (at 9:30/10:00),
with a picture of a building next to that with two palm trees.
The plate was made by Knowles & Taylor from East Liverpool, OH.
Any help you can provide would be appreciated greatly.
Sir David France
St. Simon of Cyrene Commandery No. 9, K.T.
