  2. Ah, you bought it. Really nice to see a better picture, I was a little curious. A beautiful miniature I never knew existed before it came up.
  3. Westfale, I like it! I'm also quite taken by these small enamelled bars. If you're interested in Württemberg I can show you a enamelled 9 years service bar for NCO's 1874-1892! I suspect this is more common than yours. / Lars

  7. Mostly for you, Rudi. A rather small version, 12 * 14 mm.
  8. Well, my bet is that he's wearing a 1906-37 type Olav Commanders 1st class set. The ciphers of the Oscar type is very distinct and different from the ones on the photo (look below) and there's no lion above the crown. But interesting that he have an India Mutiny and 50 years later he gets a Olav Commander 1st class without having anything else. It's probably too late, but somebody should teach him the basics about mounting the ribbon !!!
  9. Hi Christer. Nice collection, but I have some thoughts on your last group. If this were to a Finnish recipient he would never had the FLC and the Lion mounted in that order, and if he were FLC II I would have expected that he had something else as well. I cannot really see the true colour of the first ribbon, but my initial thought by looking at the ribbons would be Belgium Order of Leopold, Poland Order of Polonia Restituta and (correct) France Order of Agriculture Although this may not be correct it seems that the group have been assembled later than sewn. There's absolutely no reason for the Agriculture to be mounted in this crude way with a huge steel ring btw the ribbon and the badge, the miniature would have been sewn neatly into the ribbon. /Lars

    Persia, Order of the Sun and Lion Star. Uncleaned, a nice example, Silver, appr. 90 * 90 mm. Price is 650 Euro plus postage, preferrably paid by a bank transfer using BIC/IBAN.


  11. Just aquired an early Christmas gift for myself! Let me present a superb group from the early wars with 3 miniatures artistic mounted from a silver bar : Fürstentum Reuss: Ehrenkreuz für die Feldzüge 1814/1815, Austria: Silbernes Zivilehrenkreuz 1814, Fürstentum Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt: Erinnerungskreuz für 1814/15. The Austrian cross appears to be quite rare with only 149 awards according ti the litterature I have. The group was darker than black when I got it, but with a gentle cleaning we can see some fine details, especially of the Schwarzburg cross.
  12. Another miniature that just came in, 15 * 26 mm.
