May I present a little lady who has recently emerged from the shadows. She is a miniature of the Prussian Frauen-Verdienstkreuz which was founded on 22 October 1907. She must be quite rare because (1)

I don't collect minis, but here are my nicest examples, a pretty rare VKmdK, and a Kette which belonged to Rittmeister Roger von Boch of Villaroy&Boch fame.

It's nice to see this tread go on. One of my later acquisitions, nothing special, but I really enjoy the ornamented button by Meybauer. Definately the first one for me. I hope you enjoy.

Fantastic minis everyone. I recognize one or two, which were in my collection and some of you guys have more of my former minis.

Tom, the three-piece Mini-EK is AWESOME. I saw it, but too late, otherwise i would have bought it. Excellent Piece and only the second, i have ever seen.

Here is the one and only mini I have.It's a Hindenburg cross and Prussian landwehr

long service award.I think these little medals have a great amount of detail considering the size. I was told that it was most likely manufactured between

1934-1938.any ideas on who may of manufactured it?

wow - as always Andreas has the most impressive pieces!!!! :speechless1::jumping::speechless1::jumping:

Is this wonderful barette from the 1830-50s ? beautiful artwork !!!


Thanks guys. I am not sure what timeframe exactly, but definetly arround 1830th. It would be nice to find out about the recipient. yet this might be kind of tough due to the fact that this fellow must have been austrian besides the problem with the grades of those decorations.

    • 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 .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
