PROUDLY PRODUCED IN CANADA!
Each RCMP 150th Anniversary Commemorative Collector Plate begins as a clear glass plate which becomes transformed into an exceptional, high quality keepsake. With many complex steps from start to finish, the creation process poses a high degree of difficulty. The delicate procedures result in the brilliantly rich crackle which receives and illuminates light and provides a unique element of depth to each piece. These remarkable heirlooms are rendered individually by Bonnie, with all processes administered on the backside of the glass.
Each 8" plate is framed in a black, 11"open faced solid wood shadow box lined with royal blue ultra suede and the RCMP Tartan as the backdrop or Royal Red Ultra Suede as an option. Two custom engraved black plaques which sit on the frame add a personalized touch to these mementos, which can be either wall mounted or displayed on a stand. Included is a Certificate of Authenticity that is signed by Bonnie Saunders and applied to the backside of the frame. This is a great added feature for future generations to appreciate.
Glass Treasures by Bonnie Saunders is an Approved Vendor by the RCMP Foundation.

"Hi Bonnie, The plate arrived today and even nicer than I had hoped. Lady, you certainly are an excellent artisan! Must be something in that Saskatchewan air that creates people like you! Thanks so much for a piece of art that will forever be in our family...!" Wm. Bellwood
June 21, 2023 "When thinking of a person that deserves such a beautiful commemorative plate to recognize exemplary service and an outstanding career with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, retired Assistant Commissioner Peter Clark, is top of my list. He also goes over and above volunteering hours within his community at Vermilion, Alberta. When Bonnie was approached to design Peter’s gift, she jumped at the chance to honor his service. Her detail and professionalism is outstanding. Peter’s reaction to the presentation, was to say the least of true admiration for her work, and how impressed he was with the detail. This is a keepsake that he will hold close to his heart. Thank you Bonnie for designing a gift that was a great surprise! We would highly recommend ‘Glass Treasures’ to anyone looking for an original creation to celebrate a special recognition." Tracy Blanchard
"Thank you for your attention and quick response to my requests for my son's retirement gift. It now hangs on the "Wall of Honour". " Brian R. ~~~
"I bought a plate for my son’s graduation. It is truly a work of art and he really appreciated it. He especially liked the fact that his name and regimental number were on the frame. Bonnie was very helpful throughout the whole process and it was a pleasure to deal with her. She even called after the graduation to see if it had arrived safely and on time. I had the plate sent right to Depot so he would receive it on his graduation day and it worked beautifully. Thanks again Bonnie!"
Dorothy N."Good day Bonnie, I received a plate from Mike Rude for my dad. I had a little gathering for him. He completed 36 years RCMP K Division, Staff Sgt upon retiring. You made my father very happy!"Robin B.
"Hi Bonnie, We had a great time at the retirement party! My sister appreciated the RCMP Crest Plate and thankfully, no one else gave her anything that was remotely close to it! In fact there were many RCMP members commenting on it and inquiring where I got it done so I passed your name and email address on to them. Thanks again Bonnie and I most certainly will keep you in mind if I or anyone I know is thinking of a more personal gift like this."Candie :)
We made it to our son's graduation and it was an amazing weekend! We were able to surprise him with it, and he loved it! Thx so much!

**If needed in time for a graduation, Bonnie is happy to send your plate directly to the Trading Post at the RCMP Depot in Regina so you don't have to travel with it prior to graduation. She is also able to obtain the regimental number without the recipient becoming aware, thus the surprise will not be spoiled. What a great way to honour your loved one's hard work!! Please use this address at checkout if you would like it sent to the RCMP Depot in time for a graduation ceremony. Bonnie will work with you to compose the best wording you would like for the engraved plaques: Trading Post at Depot 5600 - 11th Ave Regina, SK S4P 3J7

She was so helpful to talk to and is a continuing help to us in finding a meaningful way to recognize our employees and those who have helped our Team. Federal Intelligence Team - South RCMP KDIV"
