Decorations from the collections of the Serbian museums

Gros Delettrez. 22 November 13

I am fairly certain it was his chain based on other known examples numbers, alas it was withdrawn from the sale as someone told them it had to be returned to the central chancery, causing much consternation amongst two potential buyers who had flown out for the sale. However when it is a gift from the monarch to another head of state then it is not returnable and can be legally sold.

Paul,

Thank you very much for sharing that information!

Petar II christening photo, I believe that King Aleksandar is wearing Royal Victorian Chain and GCB star.

Duke of York was the godfather.

Couple of days ago exhibition "Hidden treasure from the Home of Jevrem Grujić" (Скривенo благo Дома Јеврема Грујића) ended.

Text in Serbian about it: http://www.rts.rs/page/stories/sr/story/16/Kultura/1521576/Skriveno+blago+Doma+Jevrema+Gruji%C4%87a.html

Some photos I took the last day.

First decorations, unfortunately most of the names were incomplete (described as the order of that and that ruler) and some were completely wrong, for example Greek Order of the Phoenix was described as Order of Polonia Restituta.

Order of the Phoenix 3rd class (1935 type) made by Huguenin and awarded to Vukašin Šećerović (Вукашин Шећеровић) as the most of the others.

Thanks for clarification, silver stripe in the middle of the ribbon means it's for 2nd type of the order from 1932?

Hmm are you sure that is Huguenin, the Blue dot in the center of the Crown isn't the top one? Or maybe the angle is a bit off :S

Yes, the blue ribbon with a steel/silver stripe on the middle is for the second type of the Order of the Crown of Romania.

I think it is the top one, also the case is Huguenin's. But that doesn't have to mean anything considering that there is also one Albanian Retreat Medal in the blue box for the Order of Saint Sava :)

One more problem with those dots is that Sorlini used both combinations, top one blue with the one below it red and the other way around.

Original size.

Thanks again, my knowledge is pretty slim when it comes to Romanian decorations.

Apart from the fact that it was awarded to Vukašin Šećerović none. Šećerović was a diplomat so that could be the answer behind the question how did he receive that particular decoration.

But it is not that strange that Ottoman order was awarded to a Serb, I've seen a lot of them on photos, and not only on our diplomats but also worn by officers and the cultural elite.

I'll try to dig up some examples.
