Order of the White Eagle with Diamonds


Recommended Posts

On the website of a quite well known Canadian dealer just surfaced a breast star of the Order of the White Eagle with Diamonds.

Since we have seen some suspect items form this dealer I'd be interested to hear your opinion on this particular piece. It was supposedly manufactured by the firm Scheid, Vienna between 1890 and 1898 (I wonder why the company name was stamped 4 times on the order). Has the conferring of such a piece ever been mentioned and if so who were the awardees?

It was listed before the weekend and looks very interesting. I inquired to the asking price and it is enough to purchase a house :) enough to place your orders in :)

Yes the price is $150.000 which is a little overpriced in my opinion, considering that you can buy Imperial Russian and Third Reich Diamond Orders or Republican Soviet ones at that price.

I think I first saw it couple of years ago in some kind of a -not for sale- category. If I remember well Montenegrin Golden Red Cross Order was there as well.

The thing that I would like to know the most about this order is who received it...

Photos used before, obviously the same order.

    • 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.
