A few small sized miniatures I hope you'll enjoy, a nice old Order of the Sacred Treasure and a Korean Order of the Eight Trigrams, both excellent quality and solid gold.

Regards, Lars

I assumed you'd like them. Nick, thanks for the class identification of the Korean one, just curious, is the class determined by the center trigram, meaning each class would have a different one (8 in total as I understand things although I'm not so familiar with the concept) or is class determined by something else?

Your assumption was correct :D

By central trigram + by inscription on reverse.

In case of your miniature - only by trigram ;)

Here they are (from 1st class to 8th class)
