One of the most beautiful Hungarian orders are the order of VITÉZ.

There are many makers of the order itself, and one of those are JEROUSHEK.

I had two Boczán badges in my collection before and now I got this Jeroushek one.

Many collectors says that it´s the most detailed and beautiful enamel work among the Vitéz badges.

The Hungarian St. Stephens crown.

With the greatest respect, I must ask - Why is the cross on the Hungarian crown cockeyed? I know there must be a good story there.

Thanks,

Hugh

Hello Hugh!

Yes there are many stories about the adventures of The Holy Crown of Hungary.

But the most believable is what you can read in the links below.

The Holy Crown of Hungary

Stephen I of Hungary

I can just imagine the look on the servant's face when he slammed the iron lid of the storage chest on the top of the crown! :o

Thanks for these.

Hugh

    • 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.
