Hi, I have to say that purple enameled example in posts 20/21 is amazing! Please don't shoot me, but what exactly is it please?? Here's my small contribution - something from the lower end of th

I thought I would revive this topic with this little mini chain.  The center award appears to be a 2nd Type Leopold Order, 3rd Class.  The Red Eagle 4th is not unusual but, the Russian 1904/05 Red Cro

Doesn't it just hurt when you see things we have the proverbial "snowball's chance in Hades" of finding.... sigh....

Sadly, I've seen them, but that's all. A couple appear on my web site, but as you can see by the photo credits, they are Andreas's. Thanks again, Andreas, for letting me use the images to fill the many gaps I have.

Lippe-Detmold is here: http://home.att.net/~david.danner/militari...ppe-detmold.htm

At some point, but not likely before the beginning of next year, I would like to overhaul it and a few of the other pages.

This one is mine: Military Merit Medal (Milit?rverdienstmedaille)

...

here are two of my "roses" - not so nice than the roses posted before,

but anyway, here they are:

The "Milit?rverdienstmedaille"

You are wrong...these medals are nice...and much rarer than you can imagine.

I?m actually helping somebody with writing an article about the Military Merit Medals (Mili?rverdienstmedaille),

I saw almost all files stored in the archive of Detmold dealing with these medals...with some surprises.

Here are my two beauties...by the way, I have never seen a miniature of this medal :speechless1:

Solomon,

Thank you for posting your Arts and Science 2nd class with oaks. It not only reflects excellent workmanship but also presents another example of the unique designs to be found among the Imperial German Arts and Science decorations.

Solomon,

I have hesitated in posting this piece; but since it does not appear that anyone else is going to offer a picture of one, I have decided to go ahead. In getting the color of the enamel right, the background color approaches the point of distraction. I?m sorry but I have not yet qualified for an advanced degree in Photoshop.

Anyway, I felt that because of their unique characteristics, one should be one in this thread. Occasionally we have ?beauty contests? trying to determine the most beautiful Imperial German orders - which usually come down to Zahringen Lions against the Lions of Brunswick. Unfortunately these pieces are never mentioned.

Best wishes,

Wild Card

Wild Card

Yes, the design is very unique. I?ve forgotten to say the name of the former (female) owner:

It was awarded by the opera-singer Lilly Walleni in 1914, one of those 4 females, who got this award.

Thank you for posting the "Leopold-Orden" of Lippe-Detmold...now it hurts :rolleyes:

I like these orders very much.

Your miniature of the "Milit?rverdienstmedaille" is just a gem...I never saw it before...congrats!

But please wait some days...I just bought a medalbar, which is a comparable beauty...with Lippe-Detmold,of course :D

Greetings

Gents,

I was away for a long weekend, so my apologies for a late addition; I believe I've posted this one before, so it will probably look familiar to some already, but below is my sole contribution to the thread (Steckkreuz of the Leopold Order with Crown):

WC: as usual, :speechless1:

Beautiful enamel!

    • 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.
