I was given this plate along with many other pieces of china by my mother. She believes this too came out of an old abandoned antique store, but she is not positive. If you collect China you probably have heard of the Crest-o-Gold/ Sabin company. Their China is of interest to many many collectors. Which is why I find it strange that I can not find this piece anywhere and I have searched and searched the web and even took it up to an antique store, but they also knew nothing about this plate. It definitely is not as popular as Sabins' "George and Martha" plate to say the least. I think the symbol looks Islamic in a way, but I really do not know. So enjoy checking it out. Let me know your thoughts. Thank you.

    From Wiki:

    The Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine, also commonly known as Shriners and abbreviated A.A.O.N.M.S., established in 1870, is an appendant body to Freemasonry. In 2010, the Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine, as well as Shriners North America, changed its name to Shriners International, now covering nearly 200 temples (chapters) across North America, South America, Europe and Southeast Asia.[1] The organization is best known for the Shriners Hospitals for Children it administers, and the red fezzes that members wear. The organization is headquartered in Tampa, Florida.[2] Shriners International describes itself as a fraternity based on fun, fellowship and the Masonic principles of brotherly love, relief and truth. There are approximately 340,000 members from 195 temples (chapters) in the U.S., Canada, Brazil, Mexico, the Republic of Panama, the Philippines, Puerto Rico, Europe and Australia. On July 6, 2011, Shriners International commissioned Emirat Shriners of Heidelberg, Germany, as its 194th temple, and took the first steps toward forming a new temple in Mindanao, Philippines.[3] Eventually on July 3, 2012, Agila Shriners of Mindanao, Philippines was chartered as the 195th temple.
