A Swedish miniature group with 2 Chineese orders

Recommended Posts

Gents, just a small Swedish group of miniatures with 2 Chineese decorations. Provenience is Erik Nordström (1884-1971). He was commissioned after a recommendation by the Swedish minister Gustav Oscar Wallenberg, the Envoyé of Japan and China, as Post General in Shanghai at the Royal Chinese General Post Office in 1910. The aim was to help facilitate its work throughout China. He was positioned in several of the Chinese provinces. He retired in China in 1945 and spent his last years in Qingdao before his return to Sweden in 1948. This would of course explain the Order of Telecommunication. The miniatures, except for the North Star and the Postal Jubilee medal is nice Gold pieces.

Enjoy!

Unfortunately I don't have a picture, you cannot find one on the net. But he once wrote a book called Postman in China for 35 years, I would imagine there would be a picture, It's not available in the libraries here, but maybe one day I'll get a copy?

Included in the lot were also his Swedish Postal Jubilee Medal with a beaten up case plus a delegates badge for the Postal Jubilee in Stockholm in 1924 (never saw one before). And a badge I assume is a kind of Swedish-Chineese friendship union badge.

I do know the discussion of splitting up groups, but as the group were incomplete anyway I will probably sell these things apart from the miniatures later on. None of his full size Orders were present.
