Austrian General, possible to ID

Recommended Posts

 

Hi Gent´s,

 

is it possible to ID this general ?

 

It´s a miniaturepainting from 1857 painted by Fischer.

 

All I know from his medals are, the Militär Maria Theresia Orden pos. 1

 

and Wladimirorden on pos 3, maybe pos 2 is an early Militärverdienstkreuz.

 

Every help appreciated.

Kind regards

Andreas

Hello,

it's quite difficult to imagine which decorations are on the general's breast, because the ribbons are coloured without any resemblance to the original awards.

What makes you sure that the first could be a MMThO Knight's Cross?

​Ciao Enzo,

I´m not able to make better pictures, but on the miniature ( 4cm ) you can see the right colours which are

sophisticated on the foto. With a magnifier I recognize the red and white ribbon, curly cross arms,

white enameled cross and the medallion is white with a red bar in the middle. Another clue it´s in

front of the Militärverdienstkreuz.

 

Regards

Andreas
