Description (Brief)
Folding pocket mirror made of ivory-grained celluloid. Printing in black reads "Ladies Night Reading Consistory" and has the image of a double-headed eagle with a triangle on its chest and the number 32. Below it is a banner reading "spes mea in deo est," which means "My hope is in God."
This is likely a favor from a consistory of the Thirty-Second Degree, or Sublime Princes of the Royal Secret in the Ancient and Accepted Rite Scottish Rite of Reading, Pa. A branch of freemasonry, the group uses the word "consistory" in place of the word "meeting."
