Hello, the "swan mark" is NOT a manufacturer mark. In France every item that is to be sold on auction has to be certified by the "Bureau de Garantie" = Office of Guaranty , in the meaning of guaranty

These are some of my favorite Lion and Sun order medals that are in the Spada Collection on exhibit in the Legion of Honor museum in Paris France. They are early 19th century examples loaded with jewe

Two more from the Spada collection on exhibit in the Legion of Honor Museum, Paris France. Beautiful workmanship and very rare! The second medal down borrows a lot of elements from the Turkish order m

Hi.

Just for the record.

I was selling the star mentioned above. The star was sold for 3500 EUR to a local collector. It is the same star as shown some postings earlier. (by me)

Does anyone sell Lion and sun breast star with older enamel painting, local manufacture? I am interested.

Regards, Mat

Hi Mat,

The star you posted earlier in this thread was a different one with purple stones and a different painting of the lion. Did you sell that one as well? The really early Persian Lion and Sun medals rarely come up for sale with the vast majority being the later Saniolmamalek models that are quite abundant.

I neglected to post the back of the medal. It doesn't appear to have any maker marks. Another mystery maker ( probably Russian). There should have been a law making seller marks and plates manditory so future collectors like myself could be more informed.

:rolleyes::P :cool:

This was another early Persian made Lion and Sun on Ebay recently.

I wouldn`t be so sure that this Lion was made by Persian workshop ;)

Here comes another 100% Persian (not so bad and also from ebay)

    • I've never smoked a single cigarette in my 62 years so I can't compare, but I can say that I like Lapsang Souchong tea, having tasted it the first time when I was 16, and a sea cadet. I'm not a Brit, though.
    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
