Plaque to Washington, D.C.
is an unusual cast metal wall plaque commemorating the 1923 Imperial Council
Session in Washington, D.C. It depicts a road weary Shriner seated next
to his camel, also seated. Each is wearing their Fez. They are seated in
front of the Capital Building, which has a giant Fez on the dome. The phrase
"I parked my camel with Uncle Sam'l" is in incuse letters around the
top of the plaque. The scene is signed "Copyrighted 1923 A. H. Dondero."
The piece was cast by the Art Metal Works, and is so marked on a plaque
applied on the reverse. It retains its original silvery finish. The condition
is superb; all of the details are crisp. It has its original hanging device on
the reverse as well. It measures 5-5/8 inches in diameter.
