  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. Yes I fully accept that they were in not official and were available for those who felt the 40mm version was the "official" size, and being too large, that being so, the smaller versions were available at the time so are in my opinion a valid addition to the collector, regards
  5. Good guess then😀 Star below, saxe-ernerstine house order grand cross, (Saxony)?
  6. Hi, guessing, not too dissimilar to the Portuguese order of Christ, regards
  7. Hi just spotted, your message, thanks exactly what I was looking for, thanks, regards
  8. Hi Thank for the details, I'll have a scour through their archives to see if I can find it regards Alex
  9. Hi Thanks for the update on my early version, nice to know, would I be right in assuming that the ribbon would at that time have of a yellow/orange hue than the red currently shown? regards Alex a couple of more pictures, the stamping is difficult to photo!
  10. Yes I spotted that it doesn't have the sparkle, the others have, perhaps a one off private purchase, or a fake, who knows, pity I don't have a shot of the reverse
  11. Hi, yes the one I posted is from the omsa site, it looked "official", the link is just what I was looking for, an amazing and rare set, thanks, with regards to the sash badge I've read that at around the begining of ww1 that the crown itself was dropped from all grades, I assume the GK was the same, perhaps I'm wrong, or pre-war awards kept the crown, after that awards were made minus the crown, taz, thanks for your additional input also, best regards, alex
  12. Hi Taz, thanks for the information, yes it all helps, one additional question, the cross you posted appears to be a cloth type for sewing to the uniform, attached is the sash, currently on a dealers site, together with a "Type 3?" breast badge, what would have been attached to the sash, I assume there was something regards
  13. Hi Does anyone have any information regarding the Grand Cross of the order, it is mentioned in numerous places but whilst I've seen images of the Sash, and lower grades, I can't locate any details on the Grand cross, Did it exist? it states that very few were awarded, so is obviously rare, any details photo'd and dimensions etc appreciated regards
  14. Found this version in my files, a bit different, can't vouch for its authenticity but post for appraisal, Saxe Ernestine House order
  15. Hi does anyone know the physical size of this grade?, Any help appreciated, regards
  16. Hi, thanks for the interesting details, I agree that when you look at the originals examples the quality is amazing!, Regards
  17. Hi, thanks, it's the only one I've ever seen, must be fairly uncommon, good luck in your quest. Regards
  18. Just a quick update about recent additions, my mistaken belief that I'd bought a "Prinzen" version, when in fact it was a reduced size for medal bar wear, finally got myself a true "Prinzen" so I think I've got all known sizes (I hope) measure 29.5mm attached regards
  19. Just for interest, attached images of two medal bars attributed to Prince Alfons of Bavaria, each shows the St Georges medal, given the very low numbers of the gold version made, are these likely to be "Gold" or "silver gilt" wearers copies, taking into account who he was? regards
  20. This might help The last two, both pop up quite regularly in "Royal Circles" British Queen Victoria Diamond Jubilee medal (Inner, inner, inner circles of royalty got it in gold I believe, sometimes with an "1897" clasp) Swedish Oscar Jubilee medal (For Royalty in his case)
