This is a great circa 1900 Shiners miniature mug with a gilt and enameled logo. There is an acronym under the logo which reads "A.A.O.N.M.S." This is both and acronym and an anagram, meaning both "Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine (Also known as the Shriners of North America.)" and "A MASON." The Shriners are an appendant body of the Freemasons, the meaning behind the anagram. The mug holds approximately 1/8 Liters, as noted on the reverse of the mug above the handle.
Approximately 3-1/2" x 2-3/4" x 3"
MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION:
Ceramic, gilt & enamel.
"A.A.O.N.M.S. MADE IN GERMANY."
This is from a Shriners collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. ebay05/16/20 VEZ17 LHEX03/17 psLIJX05/20
