Königin Charlotte, Wildbad 1894
« on: May 30, 2019, 06:01:29 PM »
This has me defeated.

The full text reads:
KÖNIGIN CHARLOTTE WILDBAD Z. ER. A D. FAHNENWEIHE D. MILIT. VER 16. 9. 94.

No hits on Google so far. Any thoughts?

Thoughts yes. Whether they are helpful, I don't know. ;)

Charlotte is this one. And the text, if we expand the abbreviations, would be "Zur Erinnerung an die Fahnenweihe des Militärischen Vereins" (or maybe der Militärischen Vereinigung). This "Fahnenweihe" is the dedication of a flag in some special ceremony; guess that was pretty popular back in those days. Apparently the piece was made by Schwerdt in Stuttgart ...

Thank you very much Christian. Abbreviations are always going to be difficult, whatever the language and my German is conversational only. This gives me a bit more to work with. Cheers.
