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.

    • I've never smoked a single cigarette in my 62 years so I can't compare, but I can say that I like Lapsang Souchong tea, having tasted it the first time when I was 16, and a sea cadet. I'm not a Brit, though.
    • 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
