Gentlemen,

A couple more old timers stopped by over the weekend to get their pictures taken. First is a little guy from W?rttemberg...

I brought this little fellow home to have his picture taken for a thread on another forum; but I thought that he should make an appearance here as well.

Hi Wild Card, nice miniature. I had looked for such one for some time and finally got one a year ago. But what bothers me a little is the confused dog running around in the absence of the proud stallion. Think yours is a little more true to the f/s one :unsure:

Greetings larsb001,

I must confess that I burst out laughing (startled my wife), when I read your ?...confused dog running around...? comment. Actually, it is a pretty little piece on a truly fine bar.

However, you have brought up a point which, although stated before, merits repeating. When it comes to miniatures, the quality of workmanship covers a wide spectrum - one needs to look no further than the mini EK?s. To illustrate my point, below is a cross from the Oldenburg Duke Peter Friedrich House and Merit Order, which, if I may, I would say looks pretty nice.

Now take a look at the reverse. I think that this speaks for itself. Keep in mind that this is the reverse - who is ever going to see it? Why did the artist, not jeweler but artist, do this? Because he could!! Yes Gentlemen, this cross measures 16.2 mm across.

Best wishes,

Wild Card
