Silver gilt-edged white enamel Maltese cross on scroll ring and loop for ribbon suspension; the face with a convex silver gilt terrestrial globe within a deep blue enamel ring inscribed in gilt letters ‘UBIQUE PATRIAE MEMOR’ (Latin = Everywhere mindful of the homeland); the reverse with a circular central silver gilt medallion bearing the dates ‘1845 1912’; a crack to the lower right arm of the face; on original ribbon with rosette denoting an award of the officer class; in original fitted embossed case of issue by H. Stern of Rio de Janeiro. The Order was instituted by Law 51410 of 14 February 1962 and its regulations set out in Decree 834 of 3 April 1962. It may be awarded to both Brazilian and foreign nationals and is mainly an award for the diplomatic service, though it is also awarded for service and meritorious achievement in other civil and government fields. The Order is named for José Maria da Silva Paranhos Júnior, Baron of Rio Branco (1845-1912), son of the Visconde do Rio-Branco (1819-1880) who had been Prime Minister of Brazil from 1871 to 1875. The Baron followed in his father’s footsteps, becoming a distinguished and successful diplomat and later Minister for Foreign Affairs from 1902 to 1912 and is patron of the Brazilian Foreign Service. Please note this example has a crack to the white enamel of the lower right arm of the face and is priced accordingly.
