Wonderfull,

When used patiently and correct nothing wrong with this method, as long as it isn't meant to remove original paint. In this case, it was used for ugly painting, so no probs with it.

Just love the award!

Also the grandofficers star mentioned above here.

Kind regards

Jacky

indeed, that one with the swords is about 1880-1900 and I guess that the other is around 1930-1940.

that one with the swords would fit nicely next to my civilian one of that period :love:

How can one see which period a star belongs to??

Kind regards,

How it is made, the details of the craftmanship, etc...

I would even say the military one is made by Heremans and the civilian is made by Wolfers

The strange thing is that there is nothing on the back to attach the star to a uniform. Just small holes in the beam points.
