Object History

This piece was imported from the Netherlands and came from a reputable collector. The seal was made for the Austrian Order of the Golden Fleece which is similar to our knighthoods. It used to be a universal fellowship, but only exists in Austria now as I understand it. Made in circa 1900, it was manufactured by the noted Viennese silversmith Georg Adam Scheid, (1838-1921)
