Great Cross of the Decorations of the German Red Cross, 3rd version (Großkreuz des Ehrenzeichens des Deutschen Roten Kreuzes, 3.Form), 1937-1939, by Chr. Bauer of Welzheim, probably a collector’s copy
[DE470]
Quantity Available: 1
£525

Gilt-edged bronze and white enamel Geneva cross with loop for neck ribbon suspension; the face with a centrally-imposed gilt and black enamel German eagle, a white enamel escutcheon bearing a red enamel Geneva cross on its breast, a black enamel cross gammée within a circular laurel wreath in its claws; the reverse plain with maker’s mark ‘CHR.BAUER WELZHEM’; diameter 51.68mm (2.034 inches); slight ‘hairs’ to the lower arm of the cross, some slight wear to the edge-gilding; on a shortened length of old neck ribbon. The Cross was instituted in 1922 after the Red Cross societies of the various states that had constituted the German Empire up to 1918 merged to form the German Red Cross. The appearance of the Order was changed to a more ‘Germanic’ design on 30 January 1934, the German eagle replacing the Red Cross as the most prominent feature. On 6 April 1937 the design was again amended, the main change being the addition of the National Socialist cross gammée (swastika) in laurel wreath border. On 1 May 1939, the German Social Welfare Decoration (Ehrenzeichen für deutsche Volkspflege) was introduced and the Red Cross Decorations were not awarded after 1 July 1939. The Great Cross (Großkreuz) was the highest award of the German Red Cross. This version was awarded only from 6 April 1937 to 1 July 1939 as is, as a consequence, very rare. On balance, our view is that this is likely a collector’s copy and is sold as such.
