Gentlemen, I received a Saxon Albert order awarded to a Japanese major on the occasion of the Chinese New Year. The owner was called "Kumataro Oyagi". He accompanied the Prince of Saxony to Japan in 1909, and then followed him to the German colony in Asia, which is my hometown Qingdao, and obtained this order in 1911. But it’s a pity that I didn’t find a picture of him, but I found another Japanese to get a picture of Albert

What makes me sad is the slight injury on the back at 9 o'clock. .:(

The breast star order does not belong to this Japanese. .

Hi,

What a nice cross you have there. A very nice gold-plated silver cross from Scharffenberg. Only 695 crosses were awarded till 1914.

Major Oyagi Kumataro received it on 6 May 1911

The star is very nice too. It is for the commander cross 1st class with swords

Congrats

Christophe

wow, great stuff! But can somebody please explain to me, why there are swords on the star and none on the cross it self? Is this comon in Saxony? I knew the other way around in Brunswick. I am looking forward to reading your answers on this one.

This is normal, the breast star is like I said above for the commander class 1st class with X. There is nothing happened with the knight cross with crown without swords.

Thanks, I guess I am tired, I haven't noticed that this was a knights cross, but now, sure makes sence! 

I think you must have misunderstood what I mean, the breast star and the order of the cross do not belong to the same person. I just show the two Albert orders that I have:P

One small correction.

the star is for the commander 1st class with swords on the ring. A rare class for the AO.

    • 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.
