  2. Sorry I omit to put the word "big" in my last question... So I will rephrase;could you tell us please the dimensions of the badge?
  3. Hello, could you tell us how (or small! ;-)) it is, please! It makes me think it could be a German (it is definitely German!!) insignia for colonial troops.

  6. That is probably the reason why I don't have any in my button collection... (lol!!) ;-) You did well, enjoy. I neglected my button collection for some while and most contacts.... But I 'll try to find some help for you. There is a guy called himself "button guru" living on Malta I think, who happen to have a button forum on facebook, but I am not on facebook.... I was in touch with him directly, but lost his details...
  7. Hello, very nice and interesting! If you are in to buttons, and interested to swap, please let me know. Sorry, I forgot to state that I am not able to id the buttons you showed.

    Work of art...

    Hey Peter, and apparently not appreciated by the public, I got it for 30 euro's at a auction.... I was ready to put quiet more on it.
  9. with some work, came to me today;
  10. Managed to buy this ..."work of art"...at auction. "Artist" ...unknown, but I think it will be stripped and that I will only keep the medals, buttons, plumes and cords!
  11. Hey Mike, thank for your comment and glad that you like it.
  12. Had a hard time to id this item, and I am still not sure how to call it in English. It is a jar made of clay and bearing the old coat of arms of the city of Antwerp. It is called snel or snelle and is derived from a old German word; "Schnalle". Not sure if it was mend to serve wine or beer (or both), but it was used during the world expo in Antwerp in 1894. That expo brought the middle ages back to live and Prince Friedrich Leopold of Prussia was one of the 1.5 million people who visited the event. The jar came with a doc, witch says it was the last jar standing and sold to a man who seems to have payed quiet something for it.... The jar also bear the AH letters coming from the name of the pub (De Aangename Hof, ...not Adolf H :-)) in witch it was used at that time.

    Antique Arrows

    Hello, you did fine! But this ain't a website, it is a forum! There is nothing else to do then wait, until a member (who has knowledge about this ) answers you. You don't need approval by a mod. I can not think of anyone to direct you to, but try to find a auction house specialized in this kind of objects, they might be able to help.... ;-) And keep us up dated, if possible.
