  1. I got myself this set of medals from a house clearing yesterday. I do know the first Rhine land occupation medal post WWII period. But I didn't know the palms medal, apparently commemorating the post WWI Rhine land occupation.... I would like to read your comments regarding this particular medal (and its ribbon!).
  2. Not really furniture, but a miniature for sure. This well decorated +/- 30 cm high altar.
  3. Finally found the button! And the best part is that it didn't came alone;
  4. I wouldn't trust the tank destruction badge, and wrong ribbons on some of his Belgian medals...
  5. I am into antiques in general and we often clear houses. But just like you, I haven't found much militaria until now. And surely no M35 DD... But never the less, greatest part of my collection doesn't come from fairs or dealers... I get most, sometimes from colleagues who do find militaria, my local auction house and flea markets. Best find ever was a couple years ago. Not really militaria related, and found at the local auction house at a very low price. It can be seen her on the forum.
  6. The style is quiet similar, but I couldn't tell you when Belgian uniform makers started making our own uniforms again.
  7. Hello, I wouldn't be of much help, because not my field of experience! But putting proper pic's could help, I for one are not able to open the link you gave...
  8. That is a pity...but still foreign made (supposed to be ...) Belgian buttons to me...
  9. Hey Tony, having the outer circle they look more like WWI buttons, but the lion is quiet different of the lion's I have on buttons. So my guess is they are British made.... The bunker is a mess at the moment, not able to check it ....
  10. Hello, buttons are Belgian all right! Any makers mark on the back?
  11. Hello and welcome. Depending on what you are posting, this thread can be active. You can always start a new one too. The forum is still active, yes. 😉
  12. Hello, got those pictures in a lot among others coming from France. But what are they? Thanks for your help.
  13. Still looking for any info regarding the artist; Luli August Sturdza. All I could find so far is; OLD AUGUST STURDZA, painter, graphic artist, decorating artist, was born on January 24, 1922 in Bucharest, as daughter of Elena and Henri August. She graduated from the "Nicolae Grigorescu" Institute of Fine Arts in Bucharest, the 1948 promotion, having as professors Eustatie Stoenescu in painting and Simion Iuca at engraving. In parallel with the plastic arts, he attended the courses of the Faculty of Law. Between 1949 and 1958 he lived in clandestinity. In April 1949 he ran away from home when Securitate came to arrest her. By the end of the 1950s, he had been hiding in various friends - including the Dinescu and Alexandru Paleologu families, where the architect Virgil Antonescu was hiding, always changing his address and leaving the house only at night. On December 30, 1950, with a fake identity card, he married Amzei Square City Hall with engineer Petre Sturdza, her name becoming Ioana Sturdza. She moved to Braila, where her husband worked, and four to five years later in Lupeni and then Petrosani. In 1958, before Christmas, she was arrested following a denunciation, but in one month she was released, for the information she could have given to the Securitate had become useless (the people helped by her ten years earlier had been arrested and most had already left prison). Between 1960 and 1979 she regularly participated in decorative art exhibitions in the country and abroad, where she exhibited ceramics, textiles, embroidery, painting on wood and glass, collages, posters. In 1961 he won a ceramics prize in Prague. Between 1970 and 1978 he had several personal exhibitions: 1970 - Bucharest, London; 1971 - Paris, München; 1972, 1974, 1976, 1978 - Bucharest. Since 1963, she has performed film and theater costumes and decorations. In 1964, he collaborated with IL Caragiale on delicacy politics and won the film's plastic film award at Oberhausen, Austria, together with Marcel Bogos and Constantin Piliuţă. In 1967 he made the costumes for Tom Sawyer after Mark Twain, a short film produced by Buftea Studios in collaboration with Franco-London Film. In 1976 he made the costumes for Missing Gold of Incas after Jack London, TV series produced by Telemünchen. In 1978 he performed the costumes for Uncle Vanea by AP Chekhov, played at the Mic Theater in Bucharest, and won a prize at Novisad, Yugoslavia. Between 1967 and 1975 he was an artistic director at the "Decorativa" company in Bucharest. At the end of 1978 he left the country permanently, for one year he worked in Europe and in 1979 he had personal exhibitions in London and Geneva. established in the US in Los Angeles, where he continued to work as a plastic artist, and had personal exhibitions in Hollywood in 1984 and 1988. In 1984, 1985 and 1986, he won the 1st Prize at Marylin Clark's Easter Parade, . In 1988 he performed the costumes for the 100th anniversary of Eugene O'Neill, celebrated at Hollywood's "Gene Dynarski" theater, and in 1989 he made the costumes for Eugen Ionescu's Chairs , played at the Friends & Artists Theater in Hollywood. Los Angeles.
  14. A better frontal view of the eagles would help.
  15. Also my guess. Any chance so see a detail the buttons, on that uniform?
  16. Sorry I omit to put the word "big" in my last question... So I will rephrase;could you tell us please the dimensions of the badge?
  17. Hello, could you tell us how (or small! ;-)) it is, please! It makes me think it could be a German (it is definitely German!!) insignia for colonial troops.
  18. Sorry to say it is a copy indeed and I doubt the handle to be ivory...
  19. Here is what the the medals look like when taken off the panel;
  20. That is probably the reason why I don't have any in my button collection... (lol!!) ;-) You did well, enjoy. I neglected my button collection for some while and most contacts.... But I 'll try to find some help for you. There is a guy called himself "button guru" living on Malta I think, who happen to have a button forum on facebook, but I am not on facebook.... I was in touch with him directly, but lost his details...
  21. Hello, very nice and interesting! If you are in to buttons, and interested to swap, please let me know. Sorry, I forgot to state that I am not able to id the buttons you showed.
