Dear Bucky,

you probably mean whether the decoration is original piece (pre-1918, Monarchy time period) or collector´s copy. The later is true. It´s just collector´s copy, made after 1945. Sorry if this answer didn't please you.

Regards,

t.

I agree, this is a later (although good quality) copy, most probably made by Rothe, Vienna. More, an award piece of the Order of St. Stephen should always be made of gold.

As a matter of interest, I hereby post three pieces from my collection: a very early, austrian-made gold réduction; a "Kleinkreuz" in gold from the late 19th Century and a mid 19th Century, gilt silver, privately made "Kleinkreuz".

Best wishes,

E.L.

Thank you for posting these, Enzo. It is always most instructional - as well as being a delight - to see examples from your wonderful collection.

Hi Elmer,

Thanks for a most educational elaboration. Given the similar appearance, I assume this enamelled miniature (27,33x14,34mm) is also a post-45 piece?

I regret to say yes, although someone dates this type of miniatures to earlier years, like 1922-1938.

Thanks Elmer, that's a little bit better:D. Nevertheless, I like this little creature.

You can see that the quality is not compareable with that in the pics. It seems to be a late collectors copy.

Maybe you mean this? He is from the German Witz website, a late replica

I think that Christian meant that small decoration which is on ribbon and it`s placed on the large-size pictures from "Oesterreichs Orden und Ehrenzeichen" book. I agree with him. It´s just later copy.
