Here is another addition to my collection

interesting because of what is etched on the reverse - hard to read but appears to say “f sedlatzek berlin leipzigerstr”5B890A40-7308-4672-97C1-39059B8904C7.thumb.jpeg.ace2a3c607e265ff19a0aad0d2e08469.jpeg

No company name on the pin, perhaps a very small silver mark but difficult to be certain.

I do have another Sedlatzek Tamara in my collection (based on my big excel file used to document my collection) but not at home and can't remember the details and suspect I did not post a picture here.

Attached the pics of the current one.IMG_0434.thumb.jpg.709d5c42362f7082ee45aa90f1b64a69.jpgIMG_0435.thumb.jpg.459bfdb6340e23c6de12b33c73f54c5f.jpg

Consular seals always guarantee authenticity, Bob!   And they are never forged!   The case itself seems in truly excellent condition considering is supposed age.  And such a modest price!!     😏   

Some documentation indicates that a German Consulate existed in Tiflis/Tbilisi at the appropriate time [see https://researchleap.com/role-support-germany-along-difficult-way-gaining-georgias-independence-1918/].  Rather unclear, however, what role it would play in this circumstance.

Bryansk1959,  Did you not notice the sarcastic smirk icon???     The case does not seem similar to any known cases and the recess/nest for the star is very clumsy.  Someone either found some old or forged consular stamps and added them for 'legitimacy'.  In practice, what would a consular officer have to do with a military  related award?

I was in Georgia two weeks ago for business and vacation and ran into this picture at a local museum in Tbilisi - Friedrich Werner von der Schulenburgh, Consul of Germany in Georgia. Looks like he may be wearing a Tamara?1678365658_2020-01-2612_23_482.thumb.jpg.61801d6470fdf7041ab7624c4670e542.jpg

Hello friends, I want to share a photo of Order of Queen Tamara. This award belonged to a famous Georgian politician and public figure of the late 1800s- Niko Nikoladze.

Niko Nikoladze was the honorary chairman of the National Democratic Party of Georgia (1917-1921).

He took an active part in the socio-economic life of the newly created Georgian republic. His signature is on the Act of Independence of Georgia (1918).

More information about him you can find in this following Wikipedia link:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Niko_Nikoladze

He was awarded with this Queen Tamara Order in 1918 by the Committee of the Independence of Georgia

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
