Antique Masonic Majolica Ceramic Plate

from the Holy Land

    

This is a beautifully hand painted plate (has holes in back for hanging), with Masonic Square & Compasses and Star inside. Lovely holly leaf and berry border.  Great Majolica colors. The back has crazing, but the front is very smooth.  Measures 8 inches in diameter. Has some writing in back, faded and hard to read. I can make out one word "Israel".  I don't know the age of this plate, but it is likely to be from the 1920s or 30s.
