Silver and enamel insignia in the form of an upright crowned hammer imposed on a wheat stalk representing industry and agriculture, the shaft of the hammer in red enamel, the head in black enamel, the crown with green enamel inlaid panels, the ears of wheat in golden yellow enamel, crossed green enamel laurel leaves below; the reverse inscribed ‘Kingdom of Belgium. National Exhibitions of Work. Insignia of Honour of the Laureate of Work. Reproduction Forbidden’ in French and Flemish; on original ribbon with suspension bar with ball-tipped finials, mounted for wear in the Belgian style. The Honorary Insignia for Work were instituted on 14 March 1929 and the Laureate of Work acknowledges that the recipient is an expert in their field of work. For the bronze award, the recipient must be at least 30 years of age and have a minimum of 10 years’ professional experience, After a further five years, having achieved a higher level of attainment and demonstrated an adoption of advancing technologies or methods, the recipient may be awarded the silver Laureate, as in this example. The form of the Laureate seen in this example was introduced in 1948 and replaced in 1963. A good quality older example.
