    Default Recreated "Ordenkissen" or funera pillow.............

    Here is another alternative way to display some of my 57ers, a recreation of a "Ordenkissen" or funeral award/orders pillow.............
    Inspired by Waffen SS Officer Karl Nicolussi-Leck, Wiking Division...............
    Prost ! Steve.

    Thanks for the comments chaps !
    Nick, indeed great cabinets ! but had a "play" day today, rearranging and sorted out my shelves, moved the "pillow" over to the other 57ers !
    The Detolf is now full of model tanks again !
    Prost ! Steve.

    Very nice and well done.
    But I must ask what is funera pillow? and do you mean funeral.
    And if so I have never heard of a funeral pillow.

    Yes, a funeral pillow or better yet, a Ordenkissen. I am shocked you've never heard of this. It was a common way during the funeral services to honor the fallen soldiers awards. See below.

    Why be shocked as I am in the current funeral biz in the US.
    I bow to your understanding of these items. I guess I am dumbass on the subject.

    Ask me anything on the current subject.! but this is a order pillow and has nothing to do with a funeral persay.
