KINGDOM OF SERBIA - St. Sava, unknown producer?


Recommended Posts

Greetings gentlemen,

This order was recently sold on ebay, 2nd type (Saint in red robes) but which producer? Same seller was selling Sorlini box for St. Sava separately.

Could it be that this order was produced by Sorlini? I have not heard before that Sorlini was producing 2nd type of St. Sava...

Variant not found on the http://www.orden.stojanovic.ch nor here http://twitter.yfrog.com/j1savapics2j (from the topic http://gmic.co.uk/in...s-my-favorites/).

Found some better quality pictures of the St. Sava variants from the book Serbian and Yugoslavian orders and decorations here:

Greetings Obi and welcome to GMIC.

I first want to congratulate you on your purchase. I hope that you do not mind that I have used these pictures from ebay.

I haven't seen this model many times before and I just wanted to find out who is the producer.

In the meantime I did some research online and I've discovered that this really is Sorlini. They have produced only 4th and

5th grade like this and they all wear FS hallmark on the ring. If I'm not mistaking hallmark can also be seen on the 3rd picture here.

Thanks for the pictures! :) I was in the middle of reply when you uploaded them, so I didn't see them before posting my reply.

Guess that must be FS or silver hallmark there. :)

Probably is FS on ring but I can't see properly , only two hallmarks I can see one of them have letters other one some kind of stamps. http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/209/photonov01230431.jpg

So there are actually two hallmarks on the ring. On that ebay picture only one can be seen.

Guess one hallmark must be for silver and the other one is producer's.

Anyway thank you for your help and pictures!

Radmilo

Order of RS unfortunately is not part of my collection , actually was awarded to my cousin I believe 1993, he sent me the picture few years ago. I did ask him couple times to sell the order but always say not now next time etc. Best regards Obi.

Thanks Obi,

It is understandable why he does not want to sell you the order. I would be very grateful if you could maybe upload couple of pictures of your cousin's order.

Of course if you personally or your cousin doesn't mind. In any case thank you.

Regards,

Radmilo

    • 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.
