This is my first post in this forum so welcome everyone:)
I need your help. Does anyone know who was the procuisator of this type of case for Austro-Hungarian decorations? Which year is the production?
I will be grateful for any suggestion.

I have some doubts about these boxes. 

I saw that they were occasionally selling at some trade fair, but I have never seen, that they would be selling on any major auction.

Also production, inscription... are  different from those of the end of the war.

So I think that they are from the period after ww1

Please forgive me if I am wrong.

Bravery medals and also KTK were awarded in the field without any box. So if someone returned home he had to buy one.. there was no official box for them, so i think it could be from the end of the war. This type of KTK box is mentioned in article about this cross in phaleristic journal SIGNUM and also in a hungarian book that came out in cca 2016...

    • 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.
