Notes: * The Chinese practice of reverse glass painting dates back to as early as 1715. In Europe the fashion for such pieces became popular in the 1750s but, given their fragile nature, few examples survive. The Prince of Wales was initiated as a Mason on 6th February 1787 at a special lodge at the Star and Garter, Pall Mall. He founded a lodge in his name and was its permanent Master from1787 until 1820 and Grand Master from 1790 until May 1813 when he became Grand Patron of the Order.
