Literature
The year 1813 is significant because it was there year that the breach was healed between the original 'Modern Grand Lodge' and the 'Antients' and the present 'United Grand Lodge' was formed under HRH The Duke of Sussex, who had been the Grand Master of the 'Moderns'. Thomas Harper, deputy Grand Master of the 'Antients', played an important part in the union.
Provenance
Ex: The Collection of the late Albert Edward Collins Nice (1898-1969). A Chemist and a Dental Surgeon, Nice was a member of various Lodges including the Quatuour Coronati Lodge dedicated to Masonic research. Considered to be one of the best collections of Masonic memorabilia ever assembled.
