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

    • 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.
