EUROPEAN ORDERS, DECORATIONS AND MEDALS

AUSTRIA


EMPIRE OF AUSTRIA (1804-1918)

  Austrian Orders and Decorations - Part I

Ortner, Dr. M. Christian, and Ludwigstorff, Dr. Georg:
Austrian Orders and Decorations - Part I: The Imperial-Royal Orders up to 1918.
Vienna 2017.
In English language, size 29.5 × 26 cm, 832 pages in two volumes, with more than 2,500 colour and black-and-white photographs, cloth-bound hardcover with dust jacket, in card slipcase, weight 5 kg.

The orders and decorations of Old Austria are a fascinating field of study and research to this day, not only reflecting the continuity and turning points of the Habsburg Monarchy from the middle of the 18th century to the end of 1918, but also constituting a direct link with the medieval secular and chivalric orders and their extremely ideological and spiritual character, particularly through the Order of the Golden Fleece. The orders founded in the 18th and 19th centuries later also took into account a recipient’s achievements but they still largely retained the nature of fellowships, loyal to their sovereign and ruler. Although these ‘orders’ were originally intended only for certain social and professional groups, throughout the 19th century the system of awards was increasingly expanded, with decorations commemorating various historical events or personages and later honouring general merit, military achievement or long service. This resulted in a system that was not only comprehensive but complex and had its own peculiar characteristics, distinct from those of other nations. There were for example privileges and monetary gratuities as well as ennoblement attached to some awards, a recipient’s social background was taken into account and there was a strict hierarchy amongst the orders and decorations themselves. This two-volume work, apart from dealing with the cultural and historical background, focuses in detail on the decorations themselves. They are shown here, in previously unpublished abundance, in a monograph of 832 pages with more than 2,500 photographs and illustrations. This part I of the planned series deals with the Order of the Golden Fleece, the Military Order of Maria Theresa, the Order of St. Stephen, the Order of Leopold, the Order of the Iron Crown, the Order of the Starry Cross, the Order of Elisabeth and the Order of the Slaves of Virtue.

Autengruber, Michael:
Katalog zur 299. Auktion der Fritz Rudolf Künker GmbH & CO. KG am 29. September 2017 - Orden und Ehrenzeichen aus aller Welt - Das Osmanische Reich: The Ottoman Collection, Teil 2.
[Catalogue for the 299th auction of Fritz Rudolf Kuenker GmbH & CO. KG on September 29, 2017 - Orders and Decorations from all over the World - The Ottoman Empire - The Ottoman Collection, part 2.]
Osnabrueck 2017.
In German language, size 29.5 x 21 cm, 272 pages, with more than 1,100 colour photographs of more than 440 auction lots, card cover.

On Friday, 29th of September 2017 from 14.00 p.m. on at the Steigenberger Hotel Remarque in Osnabrueck, with auction 299 there takes place Kuenker’s 14th phaleristic vendue with more than 440 lots. There are being offered orders of chivalry, decorations, medals and badges, mounted medal and miniature groups, certificates and documents from Germany, Europe and all over the world, from the 17th century up to present time. This time Kuenker was trusted with one of the most extensive and important collections of Ottoman orders, decorations and medals that have ever been compiled by a collector. The auction catalogue attempts to work out a system basing on the available objects, respectively to substantially enhance already existing partial systems. Furthermore, the objects were set into the overall context of Ottoman history mostly of the 19th and the first quarter of the 20th century. But also in other fields there is to be offered a lot: So, amongst others, the Pour le mérite that was conferred upon major Johann Siegemund (Sigismund) von Dallwitz (1753–1836) on the 4th of September 1794. Besides, one can find in this auction a series of very exquisite decorations of the German Democratic Republic, mostly with their certificates. Also from the time of Emperor Napoleon I (1769–1821) a series of objects is offered. More special highlights stem from Great Britain, Croatia, Norway, the Austrian Empire, the Russian Empire, and Sweden. Some orders’ insignia from overseas round off the general part of the catalogue.
