Early Chicago Temple Bottoms Up Glass

       

   

This unusual glass with the rounded bottom has the Chicago Masonic Temple Building on the front side and Masonic (York Rite) markings on the reverse all decorated in gold.  Its dated 1892 in real small numbers.  They call it a bottoms up glass because you can't sit it down until you finish up the drink.   A very interesting piece... this glass is 7 inches high.

A special "Thanks" to Brother Steve Kapp (kalbo on Ebay) for submitting the pictures of his wonderful glass.  Steve is a Master Mason and a Masonic Collector who is affiliated with the below listed Masonic bodies:
