Crown frame, gilt copper alloy, worn by Mary of Modena at her Coronation in 1685. Precious stones were often borrowed for the coronation from goldsmith jewellers, and the original jewelled setting of this crown has been replaced by paste diamonds in scrolled open work settings and imitation pearls - probably during the 18th or 19th centuries. The arches and central 'monde' can be removed and the crown worn as a coronet if desired. The original crown frame was probably supplied by Sir Robert Vyner. This crown is thought to have been worn by Queen Mary II at her Coronation in 1689; by George II when Prince of Wales at the Coronation of his father in 1714 and by his consort Caroline of Anspach in 1727.
