Wurttemberg - Fredrick-Order Ritterkreuz 1. Klasse mit Schwertern


Description

Cross in gold and enamel. This particular cross was made bi Steinam in red and yellow gold and of extremely well-done craftsmanship. The knight cross 1st class with swords was only warded 2969 times during the time of its existence from 1870 to 1918. Steinam being the oldest supplier puts this piece into the early bracket of awards and limit’s it’s number to less then a couple of hundred. Only 159 crosses were awarded before World War I.

Extremely rare knight cross in fantastic condition.

King Wilhelm I. of Wuerttemberg issued the Fredrick Order in memory of his father on January 1, 1830. The order was split into 4 classes on January 3, 1856. Swords for awards for bravery were added September 19, 1870, together with splitting up the knight cross class in a 1st and 2nd.

King Wilhelm II. of Wuerttemberg expanded on the initial structure of this order and added on August 11, 1892, the golden Merit Medal as well as on March 6, 1899, the crown to the Grand Cross.

The order was manufactured by Court Jeweler Friedrich Steinam until 1886, Court Jeweler Eduard Foehr from 1886 to 1916, The Kings Mint between 1915 to 1918, Jeweler Otto Wennberg during 1903/04 and 1914/15 (knight’s crosses 1st and 2d class only), Court Jeweler Carl Zinser for 1914 (knight’s crosses 1st class only) and the Jeweler Berg and Cie for one Grand Cross set.
