Also known as "table medals" or "art medals" in English.  A collectible field that gets little notice I think among "mainstream" militaria collectors.  They usually can be found as an extension of numismatics - called Exonumia

On no 5 is there any engraver's name on the medal, not totally clear from the image, if so there is  a chance it might be identifiable. Alas we knew a very knowledgeable collector of Belgian commemorative medals but alas he has gone to the great collectors gallery in the sky.

But this two are quiet intresting to me!

It is a bit of a special story and goes back a long time.

Rik Sauter was the father of Bob who was best friend with my father.

I used to play as a child in the atelier of the guy, when visiting him. It was like a magical place to me with lots of non finished statues and also lots of paintings of  Rik's brother Felix Sauter.

The grand son (also named Kris) sold me nearly the whole atelier when he moved from his parental house.

I had like hunderds of items, but had to sale greatest part, because it was my business and I invested quiet some money in getting it all.

I did well, but never the less regreated I had to part of it. It is like breaking up a soldiers convolute.

I howe ever managed to kept 3 paintings of Felix, one representing his brother the sculpture.

And over the years had the luck to find stuff related to the Sauter family.

And so are 2 of the medals of this bunch:

Kris nice medal, for those who don't know Peter Benoit (died 1901) was a noted Flemish composer.

I am not sure what the 1834-1934 refers to.

I particularly like the Luxemburg Fencing World Championship medal with John the Blind on the obverse (I hope he wasn't participating as it could have become dangerous).

    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian  
    • I know the way I got into collecting is like so many other people; through a sibling. I also know that my love of history is barely unique in a place like this. So I know I have a shared background with many people. A less shared area - perhaps - is that I've always loved the thrill of the chase. When I decide I want, say, a 1914 trio with an original bar, to a cavalry unit, the utter thrill of getting out there and, (a) finding groups that fit the criteria and, (b) comparing them re: ranks, uni
    • I don't really drink that much these days, but there is something about a hot cup of Char that can't be beaten when you are cold wet and miserable. Has to be with milk and although I prefer it sweet with a teaspoon of sugar, these day I usually go without. When the mood takes me I will also  drink Earl Grey (with milk of course). But if I am honest my favourite brew is coffee (espresso) can't stand instant coffee, though although I do like Camp coffee which is another British thing from days gon
