Each year Syria Temple produced a glass to commemorate the Imperial Shrine Session that they were to attend.  These glasses were sold and traded much like todays baseball cards and pins and were the most sought after collectibles at these conventions.  Syria Temple commissioned Westmoreland Glass Co. to produce a different glass each year with a "theme" suited to the city that they were visiting.   The year this wine glass was made the Imperial Session was held in Washington D.C. on May 22, 1900.  It is decorated with the bowl attached to a scimitar stem and pyramid base.  It stands 5 1/4 inches tall.
