Another "Good or Crap" question


Recommended Posts

As these are unknown to me I'd be happy to understand if this is pure crap or rare excellent items?

Regards, Lars

And this one as well (they shouldn't belong together)

Good to hear Lars.

Dear Mr. X of Japan, I would like to ask you another topic about the order of St. Stanislav. I saw a breast star with a space between the letters D and O, and other milk stars with a space between O and I. I want to know if this is caused by craftsmanship?Or is it because it was damaged? The seller said this order was made by Edward's factory

Nick, thanks for your comment, basically as I assumed.

1812, they are mine, but not a major financial loss, they came to me with some other items.

Dear Mr. Denmark, I also want to ask a question that has troubled me for a long time. There are no elephants in Denmark, and no blacks (Moors). Why did Denmark set it as the most advanced order?

Hello!

I believe the symbol of the elephant in Denmark comes from the old danish colonies in India. I guess elephants was very exotic in northern Europe in the 1500s.

Hello 1812.

During more than 500 years the Order of the Elephant have been awarded appr. 800 times. The Elephant have changed during that period from an Elephant in Gold without the tower and morian to the type you'll find today. The original statutes have been lost so we don't know exactly why the Elephant were chosen, but it is generally accepted that the Elephant were a symbol of strength and wisdom. I hope this helps.

Is the sitting black man at the top of the elephant a symbol of strength and wisdom?

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • 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  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
