Recommended Posts

I would very much like to check out if and when the Swedish diplomat and general Gustaf Carl Fredrik Löwenhielm (1771 - 1856) received the following orders:

Order of Saint Alexander Nevsky (I know there is a book with a list of recipients, but my Russian is extremely bad).

Order of Saint Anna

Order of Saint Vladimir

Anyone?

Yes, he definitely was a cavalier of St.Anna order.

No exact date but here comes a little compensation. 

The very same breast star of St.Anna order that belonged to him.

This is his St. Vladimir order (no exact date but I think all these orders he recieved somewhere around 1813/1814)

This is defintely St.Vladimir (thanks to the portrait by Carl Vilhelm Nordgren).

No info about his Nevsky but I have a date for his order of St. George 4th class.

He received it "for distinctionsin the wars with Napoleon" on October 8, 1813 (No. 2712 according to the Grigorovich - Stepanov list of cavaliers).

Med vennlig hilsen,

I am trying to identify these miniatures and hopefully the person it belonged to.

I know very little about the Russian orders, but I list all as the auction house did:

Royal Order of the Seraphim (Kungliga Serafimerorden)

Order of Alexander Nevsky???

Royal Order of the Sword (Kungliga Svärdsorden)

Order of Saint Anna ???

Order of the Polar Star (Nordstjärneorden)

Order of Saint Vladimir ???

Royal Order of Vasa (Kungliga Vasaorden)

For Valour in the Field(För tapperhet i fält)

The Medal for Outstanding Civic Service (Norwegian,Medaljen for Borgerdåd)

The Norwegian Medal for Outstanding Civic Service has as far as I know only been awarded to two Swedish citizens in the current periode:

Gustaf Carl Fredrik Löwenhielm and Nils Fredrik Palmstierna

Can anybody help with the Russian orders, and maybe also the owner?

This is an interesting hanger for the miniatures.  How is that slit used to attach the hanger to a uniform or dress coat?

I don't know. I think the order of the medals is also strange. Russian and Swedish orders in random order.

    • 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.
