Neck order - ???

Breast decorations:

1. Croix d'officier de la Légion d'honneur

2. ???

3. British Crimea Medal with two official clasps and strange upper clasp

4. Ottoman Mecidiye Nişanı, 4th or 5th class.

5. Russian Imperial Order of Saint Anna, 3rd grade.

I have zero knowledge of uniforms, but to me it looks non-military... probably an ambassador or similar...

Hello If the buttons have a  bundle of branches with an axe in the middle ,the fascist emblem , with two branches of foliage surrounding it the uniform may be of a French diplomatic around 1900 . not an ambassador because the ambassadors hat carried white ostrich feathers
