The Order of Aftab

Recommended Posts

What a beauty! The workmanship is simply breathtaking.

I dread to think what this sold for at auction ... especially if it was intimated that the craftsman was associated with Faberge.

Wow no one has been here a good while. 

I was very surprised to come across this. Is this really an order of aftab? Never seen an example like this. Looks alot like an order of sun and lion. Anyone seen similar?
