Nice illustrations, but what is their origin, please?

| Thanks for the clarification. It looks to be an interesting publication.
|Posted by: b737 August 21, 2008 11:41 am|
|Yes, it is an old and very rare german book. It contains 16 cromolitographic pages about the uniforms of the rumanian army.|
|Posted by: bansaraba August 21, 2008 01:29 pm|
|Does it have flags too?|
|Posted by: b737 August 21, 2008 02:59 pm|
No, only uniforms and this two pages with orders and medals.

| Oh, I thought it was something like this:
Besides uniforms and flags, there are some orders and decoration pages:

Order of the Crown of Romania:
as printed on a piece of woven silk which was given away free with packets of W. D. & H. O. Wills' Australian brands of "Three Castles" and "Vice Regal" cigarettes.
This particular series, consisting of 66 silks, was issued in 1916 and was entitled "War Medals".

There is just one more cigarette card of interest from this set:
There were 90 cards in the set which was entitled "War Decorations & Medals". It was issued in 1927 by John Player & Sons, part of the Imperial Tobacco Co. of Great britain & Ireland Ltd.. The card numbers of the Romanian decorations included in the set were as follows:
63 - Order of Michael the Brave;
64 - Order of the Star of Romania;
65 - Order of the Crown of Romania;
66 - 1916-18 War Cross;
67 - Victory medal;
68 - Barbatie si Credinta medal.
Note that the graphic artist has omitted from the Order of the Star the blue enamel ring with the motto In Fide Salus. Also the War Cross has been shown with the reverse of the medal.
Even so, they are a very attractive set of cards.

| I have just seen that all 6 of the Player's cigarette cards showing Romanian decorations are being offered for sale on ebay by a seller in the USA.
Item number is 260277630524, end time is 28 Aug., 09-58-14 BST.
That's a spooky coincidence!
|Posted by: Tyke August 28, 2008 10:44 pm|
The cards were sold to a buyer in Romania.
Was it anyone from this Forum?

| From the centre 2 pages of "Le Petit Journal, Supplement Illustre" of 17 September 1916 comes this large (62 cm by 45 cm) illustration.
In the lower left corner of the illustration is a graphic depicting the Star of Romania (type I), the Military Virtue medal (model 1880) and the Crown od Romania (type I).

| A Lei 500 share certificate from the Star of Romania Petroleum Company, issued in 1922.
The company has the Order of the Star of Romania, type I, military, in time of war, as its logo.

| On the 23 December 1994 Posta Romana issued a philatelic mini-sheet of 4 stamps to commemorate Romanian Military Decorations of 1866-1945.
A first day cover was also issued which had a graphic of the Order of Michael the Brave, class III, 1916, depicted on it. The envelope measures 19.6 cm by 12.4 cm..

| The german collector's version
|Posted by: b737 September 05, 2008 06:57 am|
| From the book "Oastea romana de-a lungul veacurilor "
|Posted by: crusader October 06, 2008 11:01 am|
|Thanks again - it's great to see how many really interesting kind of graphics we can found! Never seen such different types before!|

| Another graphic depicting the Elisabeth Cross.
This time from a Liebig trade card in my collection. The card is from the series "Orders awarded to women" (Sanguinetti number 0831), which I think dates from 1905.
Detail of the Elisabeth Cross in the lower left corner of the card.
On the front of the card the cross is wrongly named as the "Roumanian Cross of Merit". However, this is corrected on the reverse of the card where the name Elisabeth Cross is used.
Another error by the artist is the ribbon - it looks like the Military Virtue ribbon, rather than the blue with gold edge stripes ribbon of the actual elisabeth Cross.
