I dont have any minis worth showing, but I am reminded of a quote from a collector who had a British Miniture group with a VC... he pointed out it was worth a fraction of the price of the full sized group... but on the flip side, was probably worn much more often than the full sized medals....

A few new things in ...

Hannover, Ernst August Orden, an excellent piece in solid Gold, look at the details in the reverse cypher, it cannot be made better!

And from Reuss, an Ehrenkreuz, Offizierskreuz from 1909-1918, also in Gold

Enjoy, Lars

Some of you have seen this, I decided to buy it as it's something you don't see every day - although a little expensive.

A nice solid Gold frame with a Order of Saint Henry from Saxony and a Legion of Honour from the 2nd Restauration (1815-30), the bar is most likely related to the early wars and would probably date from 1815-20. It's quite rare to see such miniatures from this period, and it even have the original ribbons.

Enjoy, Lars

In relation to the previous Order of St. Heinrich minis shown by Peter and myself I just wanted to show this one, It is NOT mine, it was auctioned away somewhere in France recently and although I tried to include it in my collection someone with more funds than I wanted it more :banger:

But you could still enjoy this outstanding Order of St Heinrich - Order of Virtuti Military group from the Napoleonic Wars.

Regards, Lars

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
