The gold Thomas Harper Royal Arch member’s jewel.
Thomas Harper jewels in gold are extremely rare.
The jewel measures 3 1/2 cm by just under 5cm (Thomas Harper medals in silver are larger).
This is the first Thomas Harper medal in gold I have seen in 35 years.
The jewel is dated AL 5817 and AD 1817 and has a full Georgian Hallmark.The hanger is gilt and does not have a Hallmark.
The jewel is inscribed THO HARPER FLEET STREET LONDON and is stamped TH and 264 (now Lodge No. 160).
