A beautiful Russian made Lion and Sun with rhinestones. This was listed on Ebay and was pirated away before closing and delisted.

The hand painted lion was very distinctive and original.

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

Cool miniature!

Very interesting breast star!

Were there any marks at reverse Mat?

P.S. €3500... Not bad :whistle:

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.

Hi, Markus.

You are correct. I forgot to post those images. I have sold the green and purple badge too. For a litle more.

Thanks for the info.

Regards, Mat

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. The Lion painting looks familiar, and the form with tiny stars is quite nice.

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)
