As I said on my "About" page I used to collect British medals. But since I sold my collection some six years ago I have been collecting world Orders and Decorations. My particular interest lies in the Orders and Decorations of pre Communist Bulgaria, German military groups pre 1918. I also have a small collection of the Frence Legion of Honour, (mainly because of the many types awarded over it's long period of use) and some unusual items of an interest value. Enamelled Orders are pleasing to the eye and make a superb collection that even the layman can admire. Being also a dealer, I have the added luxury of being able to own for a short time some of the these beautiful decorations which I do not collect myself. But I still get the greatest enjoyment from them never the less.

I have included some ten items from my own collection which will be on show for a while, for those of you who appreciate enamelled Orders.
