Hello!

Although, I dont really like buttonhole miniatures that much , this combination was just so nice I had to get it.

I would love to hear your opinion about this piece!

No LS or any jubilee medals on this one.

Best regards,

Nicolas

Gentlemen,

 just have to ask.

I am going on the assumption that the White Falcon award is represented by the (solid) red ribbon which is located just forward of what has been identified as a Hamburger Hanseatenkreuz. Since I think that it is safe to say that our recipient was a Bavarian, is it not possible that the red ribbon might represent a Bavarian Prinzregent Luitpold medal?

Just wondering,

I am going to try to repost my previous comment which, for some reason came through blacked out.

It very well could be. The order of precedence is not what I would expect so a red ribbon could even be something Austrian as he has a couple “southern” awards.

Looks like it’s on eBay with some fresh paint on the EKs.

Hi,

definitely not my example. I got mine last year from eBay and remember that a couple month later the same buttonhole miniature was offered again. At first I thought, that someone was using the eBay photos of my example, but there are small differences. i think there are 2 buttonhole minitarures with this combination out there.

    • 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.
