As you probably know by now, His Holiness Pope Francis is visiting the United States for the first time since he was elected to the Papacy in 2013. He has scheduled stops in Washington, D.C., New York, and Philadelphia. In honor of his visit, American fine china company Lenox has released a commemorative plate.

The plate is crafted of fine bone china with a 24-karat gold accent on the plate's rim. A drawn illustration of the Pope holding out his hand to a dove symbolizes "the faith, personality, and mission of this singular religious leader," the company says on its site.

Each plate sells for $50 and is available on lenox.com and at retailers. A portion of the proceeds from each plate will be donated to the World Meeting of Families. If you have an adorable Nonna, we know just what she wants for Christmas.
