Nice piece indeed! :love:

Funny, it has quite a lot of resemblances with both the Portuguese Order of the Tower and the Sword (the overall design), and the Portuguese Order of Our Lady of Vila Vi?osa (mainly the central medallion), both posted on this thread here:

Dear Dolf,

In the Palace d'Ajuda it is not exposed to public, but you can see it in the catalog "Royal Treasures" 1992 given out by the palace, I bought it in the Museum shop of the Palace, 2 years ago, you will find all orders of the Royal Famelly in it who are still part of the collection of the Palace d'Ajuda

Guy,

Thanks a lot for the info.

Funny, a familly member worked in the administration there for years, I don't live that far from the Palace, and I get the info from... Belgium... :cheeky:

I guess I'm definetely not an outdoors guy! :blush:

It is indeed very possibly THE most beautiful Order in the world! :love: Several of our members may even HAVE grades of this order (hint hint).

Some Indian decorations are in the same aesthetic class as the Rose, but it's a short list.

Funny how a design this old is still appealing in our new century! :beer:

Rick,

Wow, it would be nice to see pics of those other grades of this Order... ;)

I've learned some time ago that some awards from other countries (not 100% sure but I think the ones I saw are from Ethiopia or so) are (at least partially) actually made here!

The designs of that period still remain (imho) among the nicest ever made! Well, personally I also love the Soviet and Mongolian period ones, but I guess that's for other reasons... ;)

    • 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.
