Alexei Evert unknown decoration.

Recommended Posts

Hi all, a bit of help if possible, I came across this image of Alexei Evert in all his splendour, unfortunately I cant identify one breast star, I don't think it's imperial Russian, any ideas, all help appreciated

 

regards

Looks like an Order of the Crown of the Emirate of Bukhara [Nishoni Todzhi Bukhoroi Dor Us Saltanat] Grand Cross star --  see Werlich's Russian Order book or Megan's website.

Here's an image displaying a different but similar photo.

Same decoration worn by the Emir of Bukhara as photographed by Prokudin-Gorsky in 1911 ...

Hi yes I've seen that image before but never spotted the star on his right breast, nice decoration though, I believe that it had a red sash and possibly a sash badge

Hi as an update, I knew I had a similar image on file, it's a TIFF image (Whopping 39.5mb), I was able to zoom right in to capture a higher quality image, just for interest
