    I think I found it. 

    General Kantardziev appears to be wearing a  'lily' order (images 1 and 2). According to Wikipedia, he has been given the award for his deeds in the war with Serbia in 1885. Actual decoration took place after the conflict ended (perhaps in 1886). 

    Another general - Ivan Popov is pictured under number 3 and the corresponding zoomed-in image of his order under number 4. Unfortunately, there are no better quality images out there in the internet, so I cannot be certain for either of these cases. 

    What are your thoughts?

    Hi

    As it is suspected the this Model was one of the first ones.

    Also we can speculate that it was given mainly to high ranking Officers, that can explain the lower numbers seen then the standard crosses.we also can speculate that any of the rare Models we see were given only to high ranking Officers and on special ceremonies

    IMHO - these orders was privately purshese from juvelier store. 

    from 1885 to 1915 - 30 years and some orders looks like this

    For some years I have a medal bar with matching miniature chain in my collection, belonging to a greek officer from the early 20th century. I wonder, if there is a way to attribute this bar to a single person. Are there sources to be found, like greek order lists or rank lists?

    Any help is appreciated!

    Komtur.
