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 Cross medal is.  With so few of the Leopolds awarded and the unusual Russian connection, is an ID possible?

 

 

 

That was rather easy, as the Leopoldorden 3rd class was not often awarded.

I´m pretty sure it belongs to
Semjon Lipliawsky, Dr.med Prof., Head of the Russian Institute in Berlin, born in Wiatka, Russia on 24th April 1874.

He got the Leopoldorden 3rd class Lippe-Detmold on 27th December 1912.

At that time he didn´t have any other award (or he forgot to state them on his receipt).

 

By the way, very nice miniature chain....:-)

    • 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.
