Unidentified Order of the Garter fancy badge with King Henry VIII

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon Gentlemen,

Can anyone help me identified this fancy decoration, is this a movie or theatrical prop or is it related to a false Order of Chivalry (International Order as the German called them) ?

It is a two parts construction, gilt and silvered bronze. There is no maker's mark.

Sorry I have a hard time uploading photos for the moment !

I keep having the same message : "There was a problem uploading the file"

The photo I wanted to add is in jpeg and only 394 Ko, any idea how I could solve this problem ?

Certainly nothing I've ever seen and I doubt that the use of the Garter motto is an authorized one.  Based on the 'bust' og Henry and the quality [poor] of the work, I'd guess that it is in fact an 'International Order', as you so diplomatically put it, or soemthing similar.

    • 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.
