Order of the Sun of Peru

85401675.jpg

Attributed to King Ferdinand. Judging by the width of the sash, it might have been conferred to Queen Maria.

I like the Mexican one back there too!!!

Order of the Aztec eagle I believe...

Order of the Chrysanthemum (Japan)

Carol I

Many thanks for posting the beautiful series of orders.

I agree with you about the Grand Crodon of the Order of the Chrysanthemum of Japan. It would never have been conferred on a lady at that time. Queen Marie would have received the Grand Cordon of the Order of the Precious Crown. The Chrysanthemum sash and breast star either belong with the collar to King Ferdinand or was conferred separately on King Carol II when Crown Prince.

The Order of the Crown of India was definitely awarded to Queen Marie. She received it on 11.12.1893. However, the badge shown seems to have lost some of its ribbon. There should be a 'tail' below the bow.

Cheers

You're welcome, James.

Thanks for the addition. I suspected a mistake in the records or at least a mis-labelling.

I am not surprised. The badge lived through the communist years when everything related to the royals was hidden from view in special deposits. And, given the date of the award, the badge even saw the 1917-1918 refuge with probably less than optimal depositing conditions. As a matter of fact, some time ago I read an entry in King Carol II's diary regarding an inventory of the awards of his predecessors he did in the end of the 1930s when he found that most of his great uncle's awards were missing. He did not blame the refuge, but there is a strong possibility that some awards were misplaced or lost during those years.

This sash does not belong to the Order of the Sun of Peru.

Wonderful pictures; many thanks for taking the time to post them. With respect to the Peruvian SUn, Werlich describes the ribbon as dark purple. Here's my Commander's version of the order.

Thank you both for pointing out the sash detail. So it could be that Order of the Sun of Peru was indeed presented to King Ferdinand, while the sash belongs in fact to an order presented to Queen Maria (the Czechoslovak Order of the White Lion or the Serbian Order of the White Eagle?).

Either of those looks like a potential suspect to me.

In fact, only White Lion counts as a possibility, White Eagle having light blue stripes, not white.

    • 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.
