    Order of the Star of Ethiopia Unusual Miniature


    Recommended Posts

    Fellow Africa Collectors,

    I came across this Order of the Star of Ethiopia miniature. It has an unusual shape but the same scrollwork indicative of maybe a Sevadjain design (?). At any rate wondering if anyone has seen such a version ?

    The design is similar to some early pieces of the Order but it is missing a crown suspension - the granulations between the arms and at the end of the arms are only seen in very early hand made pieces. Also it appears to be a cast or die piece rather than a locally hand made piece. It is most attractive but I think it is of European manufacture - the 'small' size may indicate a French origin.
