I think the Anna Waldeck portrait is by Winterhalter or by his workshop. It would be easy to trace it through that route I think.

Can anyone tell me what this refers to? Oskar's installation as the head of the Order of St John perhaps? Presumably not the confirmation of Oskar jr. because he would have been distinguished from his father, and Konfirmation would have been more likely than Einsegnung in that connection (?).

Einsegnung is a bit "older term" but means konfirmation after death comes the "aussegnung"

I found at Christie's portrait of Anna Waldeck (1838-1898) :

As I can't find any Anna Waldeck do you think this woman has to do anything with the House of Waldeck-Pyrmont or she could be mislabeled and it could be someone else from that house!?

It could be that she was a member of the rich middle class, maybe..

Compare to this image of Helena of Waldeck-Pyrmont:


or this one of Emma:
.

Wikipedia has little about the Waldeck-Pyrmont family, at least in English...

This is not Helena, is her daughter Alice of Athlone.

Is there a family resemblance?

Yes. Both sisters have nice round faces. As a result, Alice Athlone did looked a bit like her cousin Juliana during her youth.

I think Gogm was talking about if the picture of Anna Waldeck had some resemblance with the ones of Alice and Emma  .

Personally..i dont see the resemblance. Maybe it was just a noble lady with surname Waldeck.

That's Anna of Saxe-Weimar (1826-62)

For me, it looks like Carola of Vasa, queen of Saxony...

Oh, yes, really. Recently I've been too much into the Saxe-Weimar and Altenburg genealogy and iconography so that's definitely directed me into the wrong way.
And there are more photos from that session of Carola. I have one more somewhere in my collection.
