Serbian Red Cross Order with Brilliants

Recommended Posts

There have been very interesting topics about Serbian orders with brilliants on the forum lately so I decided to start one more on the subject.

Serbian Red Cross Order with Brilliants (2nd - Kingdom era type) was offered by La Galerie Numismatique couple of years ago, this is their description:

"A pinback badge for Princely Ladies in gold, brilliants and enamels, made with the most accurate jeweler’s workmanship; the double eagle and the royal crown profusely set with brilliants and diamond’s chips, the reverse with pin and safetycatch. An extremely rare and attractive decoration awarded to ladies of the highest nobility, in almost perfect condition, besides slight signs of wear."

Unfortunately no provenance nor dimensions, unknown producer and no pictures of the back side which would be very interesting to see.

Very interesting :D thank you for sharing this one with us Radmilo :)

The diamonds ruin the whole order a bit for me in this instance, make the eagle look a bit cartoonish :(

    • 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.
