HI 922F


I agree  with you

It is my Gem of the collection of my Bulgarian miniatures

It looks like French made

The mark on the loop is extremely small i wonder how they managed to put it - even with 30x i still can not "read" it

it is 18 carat gold ,therefore i assume the mark is for gold

I have been chasing one of those gems for a long time.

I think those luxury Bulgarian miniatures are the hardest to get (at least for me) and much rarer then those from other countries

I saw this post on GMIC about amazing the longest chain known to exist with 48(!!!!!) miniatures of the decorations.  It was made by Godet around 1910.

One of them is 1st or 3rd class of Bulgarian Saint Alexander order (green cross).

Hi New World,

Thank you for finding this treasure and listing it

It is a 1st Class

The owner of this miniatures bar must had been a very high ranking person


Few more mini bars . Not as impressive but very nice

You can see the 3rd Class  with green enamel on one of them

PS.  I just read the tread Yes it was an important person

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
