Bektash Shrine Temple 

Liquor Decanter

    

This two sided liquor decanter was made for the bicentennial in 1976 by Royal Halburton.   It is in the shape of New Hampshire (in green) the base is in blue.  The front side reads Bektash Temple, Concord, NH.  The back has a black dressed rider on a white horse.  Shrine of North America pieces often depict the symbolism of the Blue Lodge such as this decanter with the Square and Compasses on both sides of the lid.  That is because all Shriners must first become a Mason in order to join the Shrine membership.
