Miniature order of St. Sava

Recommended Posts

2nd type, Red Robe so candidates include at least: pre WWI, Meyer or Scheid (Vienna), WW I & after Arthus Bertrand (Paris) and Huguenin (Le Locle).  Sorlini and Griesbach & Knaus work is not often of this quality.  But since there are no marks on ring (?) either of the Yugoslav makers might be possible.   Some opine that Yugoslav makers did not make minis but retailed French or Swiss origin pieces.

Bertrand work often has a maker punch on ring, Huguenin not so much.  Meyer and Scheid [pre WW I] minis usually have marks. 

Lacking ring ID punches, sorry, but no definite answer from me!  At least here are

    • 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.
