  1. Lovely photo. I am sure that some one in the arts field with that level of high awards should be identifiable. P
  2. I have this star with a large consignment of Chinese material. I am afraid it has me stumped and help gladly received. All the best Chinese_g.tif
  3. Have just received a complemntary copy. It is certainly a marvelous work. Paul
  4. It's loosely based on a coin of Abdul Hamid II bearing the accession year AH 1293 (1876). I have seen similar pieces in gilt metal which were suspensed to the wedding dresses of those who couldnt afford the gold. Fun but nothing of consequence. P
  5. Alex's looks full sized to me but by their nature miniature regimental badges are rare as they were generally worn by non Russian soldiers and cadets who served in the Russian army prior to WW1 as miniatures were only worn by Russians who served in the overseas diplomatic service. Paul
  6. I love the order of the star which has the portrait of the Sultan on the breast star Circa 1895 Paul
  7. Looks lovely and of good quality if that is:a fake then I am pope Boniface XXXVII. Paul
  8. Military postal service it is indeed a post horn. Paul
  9. Looks 3/2 to me. European c. 1910 value give or take 1000 bucks P
  10. Very nice however no sign of a hallmark which a lesser George should possess. If gilt metal then probably theatrical. P
  11. Nice to see you are alive and kicking Nick. I am at last free from over 2 years of veterinary incarnation alias St Thomas hospital free therefore to annoy and pester people. Pavel Nikoliaev
  12. It is possible as an engraved medal some one has bogged the spelling up. As any skirt wearer knows the name can be spelt in 2 equally common ways Stuart and Stewart. Could be the engraver had had a few Old Poultneys and got the wrong spelling check Stewart Paul
  13. Looks more like a lapel badge to me but I would agree with musician but not sure whether civil or military. Paul
  14. I suspect the answer will find itself.....eventually Paul
