Here is a wonderful Shrine Collectible from the 1910 Imperial Council Convention in Louisiana.  It is a sterling silver pencil with a ring on it that the ladies could wear on a chain around their neck.  Its main feature is the "Shriner riding the Alligator" in the middle.  It also bears the Kosair Shrine logo backed with acacia and the Scottish Rite 18th or Rose Croix Degree emblem with the mother pelican pecking at her breast feeding the babies in her nest.   For a further explanation of the pelican symbol click (here).  It is also stamped "IMPERIAL COUNCIL NEW ORLEANS 1910 JERUSALEM"

Another special "Thanks" to Mrs. Joy Cook of St. Petersburg, Florida who was a secretary for Kosair Temple for 25 years for donating this wonderful item to us.  Thanks Joy!
