The relevance of Charles II is somewhat interesting. There were unsubstantiated claims for many years that he became a mason during his time in exile in the Netherlands. We believe that this was probably made for the bicentenary of his coronation in 1860 or perhaps to commemorate the bicentenary of his death some 25 years later in 1685. It is a fantastic piece of both Royal and masonic memorabilia.
