I'm starting this topic to share Spanish miniature medals and orders. Please feel free to upload images of the miniatures in your collection.

 

The following miniature bar consists of:

 

  • The Royal and Military Order of Saint Ferndinand: Simple Gold Cross 1st Class: distinguished services of chiefs and officers, according to the regulation of July 10, 1815
  • The Royal Amercian Order of Isabella the Catholic
  • The Royal and Distinguished Spanish Order of Charles III

 

These miniatures are from the period 1820-1830, are enameled and have hand-painted centers.

 

Best regards,

 

GM1

Here are my only spanish miniatures. 

 

First a military merit cross from the miniature chain of the Swedish chamberlain Gregor Aminoff (1872-1934).

Next is a Order of Charles III from the miniature bar of the Swedish chamberlain Georg Aminoff (1895-1977). 

Georg Aminoff was the son of Gregor Aminoff.

I recently bought a new miniature of Isabel la Catolica, officer's grade for a friend who was invested in the Order last October.  It came from Cejalvo who were very cooperative.  Unlike some miniatures, it has a button for the buttonhole in your lapel as opposed to a pin.  My dinner jacket doesn't have a buttonhole!  I also notice that it does not have a pasador (the gold top bar) as full size Spanish medals do (and as GM1's examples do).  Maybe that's the new style.  Any comments on that?

A nice contemporary exemplar @Hugh! I think that nowadays the button type is issued when it is an individual miniature. But you need a buttonhole of course! It is easier to attach and also cheaper than using a “pasador”.
