Do you have the 'back story' for this extraordinary piece, Carol?

I presume it was custom made for the Grand Master of the order. It is now in the Imperial Treasury Museum in Vienna.

And here's my newest addition about the Austrian Golden Fleece:

An exquisite piece, Elmar. Do you know who it was awarded to?

Yes, together with many other beautiful items.

As Utopis said, some very beautiful items and interesting to see so many variations of the 'basic' theme (as illustrated in Elmar's posting, #20 above). Thanks for continuing to post them

Hello,

 

thank you for the kind words and please excuse me for replying this late.

 

I don't know who was the original owner of my Goldenes Vliesz at the moment, but I think that with some patience I will eventually know that.

 

In any case, although being the piece "anonymous" until now, I can say that I'm very happy with it.

 

Best wishes,

 

E.L.

Is this piece exposed at the Heeresgeschichtliches Museum in Vienna?

I think that the uniform is the emperor's one, because of the "Kriegsmedaille 1873" worn with the reverse as the visible side.

Best wishes,

Enzo
