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?

    • 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.
