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.

    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian
