Cross of the Order Breast Star


Description

Breast Star to the order in silver, gold and enamel. The star was made by J. Wagner in Berlin and shows the typical makers mark below the needle hook as “W”.

Since most stars were made in small batches, one can find very often sequential roman style numbering on those stars. This example was mismatched and has the needle marked “I” matched to star body marked “II”. Very interesting feature.

Beautiful star with powerful design of Prussian’s highest order decoration.

The Prussian Order of the Black Eagle was created on January 17, 1701, by Elector Fredrik III. Of Brandenburg as a house order. The order was awarded to nobility only in it’s beginning. Only in 1847 so-called capitular knights were entered into the order while being raised into nobility. The order had one class only but could be awarded with chain by the king. The recipient automatically wore the highest class of the red eagle order as neck decoration.
