Thorn Cup and Saucer

December 2012 UK Group Raffle Prize Thorn Cup and Saucer Monogrammed... First Black Period

This very unusual Hexagon set produced for an event called the Four Masters Memorial Bazaar'   Athlone 1919 was purchased in the 1970's in San Fransisco as a complete set. we have tried to research this event but currently can find no information to tell us who or what 'The Four Masters' were. The outside circle reads "Dr. Miceal O'Cleir 15"  "(unreadable first name) O'Cleir 15" and 2 other names that cannot be read.  It's possible some of the writing is in Gaelic and names the 'Four Masters'.
