San Marino Order of St. Agatha

Recommended Posts

A truly gorgeous St. Agatha GC cased set. A beautiful order well crafted by Cravanzola. This set features a full length sash with beautiful sash badge in excellent condition. Additionally includes the breast Star marked on the reverse Cravanzola. All this beauty is housed in its full length case of issue. The inner pad is missing but displays beautifully nonetheless. Enamel is excellent condition as well. 

The Order of Saint Agatha (Italian: Ordine Equestre di Saint' Agata) is a State orderestablished on 5 June 1923 by the Grand and General Council of the Republic of San Marino. It is named after Saint Agatha, on whose feast day 5 February, Pope Clement XII reestablished the sovereignty of the republic in 1740. 

The order is presented to foreign nationals who have positively contributed charitable and other services for the benefit of the republic.

Excellent [judging by Gardino's plaque on the star reverse] post 1946 set.  There may be a hallmark on the badge ribbon ring or on the edge of a badge arm.   Replacement inner case pads may be available from Guccione, Roma.  Contact them in Italian for best response. 

GMIC posts discuss Gardino-Cranvanzola manufacturing transition periods.   J. Jacob's Court Jewelers Of The World reports useful information on the subject as well.

    • 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.
