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 today's baseball cards and pins and were the most sought after collectibles at these conventions.  Syria Temple commissioned the United States 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 San Francisco, California on June 10th, 1902.  The base represents the Golden Gate a San Francisco landmark before the famous Bridge was built.  This glass stands 5 1/4 inches tall.
