  1. I suspect it came from the same source as this one, deliberately aged repro, looks convincing though if you're no expert, fortunately this was about the same price as a repro so took an punt on no great financial loss, made in the UK I'm lead to believe
  2. Thank you, I did try them but I suspect it was the uk branch, it said no stock if memory serves me right
  3. Thanks for the info, unfortunately a search seems to indicate that no-one has it available unfortunately. whilst on the subject, looking through the list of decorations provided by speedytop, it lists "Tunisian House order" it's a bit vague, could this be the "Nishan ud-Dam - Husainid Family order" by any chance? regards
  4. Hi thanks for the images, that grand cross looks very interesting, out of curiosity, was there an equivalent breast star with crossed swords and sceptre? regards
  5. The mind boggles, actually I've noticed that any images of Bismarck wearing his decorations be that photographs or portrait paintings appear to be as rare as hen's teeth, (unless I'm on a different planet), the higher resolution copy list kindly posted by Speedytop shows an ordenspange, after much search I've located two images, one very poor where he is actually wearing one, they differ from the one on the list, quality is to poor for me to fully identify what's on them, anyone guess? In the two images I posted the medal bar appears to be the same, with at least 2 more medals regards
  6. Hi speedytop, thanks for the quick reply and readable copy, much appreciated, regards
  7. Hi all, interesting thread (For me) does anyone perhaps have a higher resolution (Readable) copy of this? regards Alex K edit hi, don't quite know why it's decided to multiply itself! (edited by speedytop)
  8. Hi, Very nice, made by "Gebruder Huguenin" particularly with the case regards Alex K
  9. Hi Claudius, glad to hear there is someone else that attaches ribbons to medals that come without one, I thought I was the only one!, as you say, they came with one, and in my opinion are not complete without one
  10. Just another update, another one with the garter, not a star but allied to one, nice mini, owned by Prince Albert, consort to Queen Victoria, Royal collection I assume
  11. You could quite probably correct, I was working from memory, maybe a privately made piece, based on quality, I wonder if the official piece followed a similar design, I assume there was one. Regards
  12. Just to update the thread, was having a rummage on my hard-drive and came across this, not a star but the complimentary badge for the Anhalt Order of Albrecht the Bear, from the British Royal collection trust I think
