Silver and white enamel Maltese cross with ball-tipped finials, with silver ions passant between the arms, on swivel Ducal crown suspension; the face with a circular central silver-gilt medallion bearing the head and shoulders portrait in relief of Ernst I, Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Altenburg (known as ‘Ernst der Fromme’ – Ernst the Pious, 1601-1675) facing left within a gilt-edged blue ring inscribed ‘FIDELITER ET CONSTANTER’ (Faithfully and Steadfastly) in gilt letters within a green enamel oak wreath; the reverse with a circular central medallion bearing the Saxon arms in black and green enamel and gilt within a gilt-edged blue ring dated ‘D.25. DECEMBER 1833’ within a green enamel oak wreath; diameter 43.92mm (1.73 inches); on replaced correct ribbon. The Ducal Saxe-Ernestine House Order, with an associated silver medal, was instituted in four classes jointly on 25 December 1833 by Duke Friedrich of Saxe-Altenburg, Duke Ernst I of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha and Duke Bernhard Erich Freund of Saxe-Meiningen. A number of changes were made to the Order in 1864, including the addition of a ‘golden’ (silver-gilt) medal and in 1890 a Knight II class was added. Between 1890 and 1913 just 872 awards of the knight’s cross II class were made. Although the Order was suppressed as a state award at the end of World War I in November 1918, it continued to be awarded sparingly as a dynastic house decoration until banned by the National Socialist regime in 1936. A superb example.
