Cubans manufacturers of civil and military orders

Recommended Posts

Dear Friend,


The purpose of this topic is to created a list of the cuban order and medal maker during the period of the spanish colony and the Cuban Republic until 1959.  


During the colonial period some Spanish order (militaty merit, Maria Cristina, Hermeneguildo) were made in Cuba or sold with a cuban maker's plaque on the back.

For the colonial period I have listed the following manufacturers from Cuba :


  1. A. Ramentol. Located # 29 street O’Reilly esquina in Habana.

  2. Pereda. Located #15 Muralla street in Habana.

  3. Perdeda y Hermano. Located #15 Muralla street in Habana.

  5. B. Gutierrez. Located #24 Teniente Rey Street in Habana.

  6. B. Gutierrez y Hermano. Located #24 or 42 Teniente Rey Street in Habana.

  7. J. Ardanin. Located #96 Obispo street in Habana

  8. Carlos Cabello. Located in Habana

  9.  Maximino Perez. Located #18 Teniente Rey Street in Habana.


 Regarding the Republic period the well know maker were:


  1. Freeman #2 Mercaderes street in Habana

  2. Pedro Colomar #4 Chacon street in Habana or #20 Perfecto Lacoste street

  3. Fuentes &Alvarez #162 Neptuno street Habana

  4. Vilardebo y Riera #53 Dragones Street in Habana.  The name was changed in Antigua Vilardebo y Riera near 1937.  

  5. Dator located in Habana

  6. Fosse Located in Habana

  7. Joyeria Bared #503 Aguila Habana

    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath. It was the image that
    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts...

    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian  
    • I know the way I got into collecting is like so many other people; through a sibling. I also know that my love of history is barely unique in a place like this.

When I decide I want, say, a 1914 trio with an original bar, to a cavalry unit, the utter thrill of getting out there and, (a) finding groups that fit the criteria and, (b) comparing them re: ranks, uni
