  1. Thanks to all, I realised only immediately after I posted that he couldn't have been the son of the above mentioned. The von Vietingshoffs had several branches of their family apparently, even also a Generaloberst in WW2. I imagine Rick (Lundstrom RIP) would have thrilled to share his "heraldic" knowledge on this subject. Cheers, Claudio
  2. Dear forumites, Could be this one the son of the above mentioned? Has anyone a better image of this officer? Hermann Freiherr von Vietinghoff gen. Scheel Thanks for your most appreciated and valuable inputs... Claudio
  3. What I can see on the bar: Luisen-Orden 1st Class awarded April 22nd 1882 https://www.heraldik-wiki.de/wiki/Louisenorden Goldene Hochzeitsmedaille 1879 Zentenarmedaille 1897, Wilhelm I der Große 1797-1897 ??? - Dynastische Erinnerungsmedaille mit Brillanten (evtl von GB) ??? Queen Victoria Golden Jubilee Medal Any opinions? C
  4. Dear forumites, Margarethe was the sister of Kaiser II and the daughter of Fredrich III. She was later the wife of Landgraph Friedrich Karl of Hessen. Here below you can view a picture of her, quite faded, wearing the uniform of Füsilier Regiment von Gersdorff (Kurhessisches) Nr. 80. Now my question is: what kind of decorations does she wear on medal bar on the uniform of Commander in Chief (Oberst) of the above mentioned Prussian regiment? Thanks in advance for your much appreciated inputs and information. Cheers, Claudio
  5. Hi Christophe! thanks for you kind words... on behalf of my brother I can tell you that these comments are really very much appreciated. Do you have any interesting or a favourite photograph of a Saxon General with full regalia that you want to share? Maybe I can convince my brother to make a portrait of him. ciao, Claudio I forgot to mention that my brother already portrayed a Saxon high officer who later became General and during WW1 Saxon minister of war. Here it is:
  6. My brother’s last work of art, portrait of (then) Oberst Bolko Graf von Rödern, in the uniform of the Garde Dragoner Regiment Nr. 2, Alexandra Kaiserin von Russland.
  7. Of course, the portrait was shown on this very forum and already having been abundantly discussed before here ... But there’re plenty of them on the www.... 😉
  8. Yes, you’re assuming correctly... https://www.ehrenzeichen-orden.de/deutsche-staaten/medaille-zum-50-regierungsjubilaum-1903.html As you can read here above, the Sachsen-Altenburg 1903 50th years Jubilee Medal in Silver was given to Generals and high functionaries. Furthermore on the picture here below you can see that the tone of the last medal is a bit brighter than the to before in bronze, hence we could deduce, it was silver the silver one.
  9. Thanks Vince but I didn’t buy the KC ... interesting 1.9 k (1900) viewings and 2 comments... 🤔
  10. Thanks a lot, Komtur. Your picture clearly depicts Prince Henry of Prussia after 1897 and before the coronation of King Edward VII in 1902. Great photo, showing great details. I would venture to say that on the previous bar (yours), you can see the following medals (10): Preussen, RAO 3. Klasse mit Krone; Preussen, KO 3. Klasse ; Preussen, Offiziers-DA für 25 Dienstjahre; Hohenzollern, Fürstlich Hohenzollernscher Hausorden, Ehrenkreuz 2. Klasse mit Krone; Preussen, Goldene Hochzeitsmedaille 1879, 1. Klasse in Gold mit Emaille (OEK 1897); Preussen, Ze
  11. Dear forumites, I would like to show an interesting portrait photo of Grossadmiral Prinz Heinrich von Preussen with his medal bar. He wore different combinations of medal bars during his life. Any thoughts of the medals he's wearing on his first medal bar here below depicted? ? Preussen, RAO 3. Klasse mit Krone; Preussen, KO 3. Klasse ; Preussen, Offiziers-DA für 25 Dienstjahre; Hohenzollern, Fürstlich Hohenzollernscher Hausorden, Ehrenkreuz 2. Klasse mit Krone; Preussen, Goldene Hochzeitsmedaille 1879, 1. Klasse in Gold mit Ema
  12. Dear forumites, I’m not sure if Generalmajor der Polizei Hans Daeuwel’s HHOX was already mentioned in this thread: I’m however still missing the date of bestowal for his HHOX. Cheers, Claudio
