N° 1.

EDAILLE of Frédéric Guillaume, Duke of Saxony. The figure's bust is surrounded by the following inscription: D. G. FRID. WILL. D.SA. EL. ADMINIST. On the reverse is the coat of arms of the German principalities to which Frederick William had the right to ennoble its coat of arms. They are accompanied by the motto: A border of enameled & up- to- date cut- out gold forms the entourage of the medallion. The first circle is green enamel, the second is gold with four alternately white & blue flowers. These flowers are separated by dots of red enamel. The four openwork ornaments that decorate the border are in red-enameled gold. A ruby ​​ hangs from the jewel. DOMINE, CONSERVA ME IN VERBO TVO, with the date anno salut, 92.

N° 2.

Gold medal of Maximilian, Archduke of Austria. Around the bust, seen in the profile, we read the inscription: MAXIMIL. D.G. ARCH. AVS. & the date 1586. The reverse represents a camp: lined up near a barrier, soldiers are preparing to fight: the word MILITEMVS forms the motto... The medallion is surrounded by a border of gold & enamel. At the top, an escutcheon: surmounted by a crown enameled in red & white. The crest on the right is Or to the lion Gules, that of the left is Argent to the eagle Gules; that of low, Azure to the five alerions Or. A ruby, of a very clear tone, is suspended below this last crest.

N° 3.

PENDANT in enameled gold enriched with diamonds & rubies. Under a portico whose pilasters are made of table diamonds set in gold, two figures in the round seem to be busy solving a problem. Dressed in a long tunic, and holding a compass in her hand, a young woman, probably Architecture, leans towards a man who is carrying a set square. These figurines are in chased gold: the complexions are enameled, as well as part of the clothes. The columns that support the arcade are decorated with triangular capitals, in diamonds with large rubies form the pedestals. On either side, apart from the pilasters, are pedestals bearing ruby​​ vases with a gold surround. A pediment, the center of which is adorned with a diamond, surmounts the arcade: the small monument is finished by a base with three rubies in pendants. The reverse of the jewel represents an architectural decoration formed of lineaments enameled in red, white, and greyish blue. Italian art has left us with few jewels that can be compared to the one we have just described. It was part of the Debruge- Duménil collection, sold in Paris in 1849 (no. 992). It is attributed to Benvenuto Cellini.
