About Millersburgs 1910 Detroit Elks B.P.O.E.
This commissioned commemorative pattern (for the BPOE, Benevolent & Protective Order of Elks) was made for the 1910 convention in Detroit. The elk in the center is looking to the left and you can see both eyes. Bowls are about 6 1/2″ to 8″ and have edge treatments of 3N1, ICS and 6 ruffle. The edge is smooth and the back is plain; it sits on a collar base with a rayed center. Fenton also did a commemorative for the same convention, but their elk has one eye and is looking right.
