WWI GERMAN PRUSSIAN KNIGHT’S CROSS OF THE HOUSE ORDER OF HOHENZOLLERN BY WAGNER – EXQUISITE!
[2145]

This is an extremely fine Prussian Knight’s Cross of the House Order of Hohenzollern with its original ribbon that is in excellent condition. This piece is with flawless enamel work to both the obverse and reverse sides. The gilt finish on the crown, crossed swords and edges is excellent and beautifully age toned. The edge of the lower arm is incised with the maker’s mark, “W” for the prestigious firm of Wagner in Berlin, and with the “938” silver content number. The “W” next to the number “938” is marked in the upside down position as is sometimes found on these pieces. The ribbon is very attractive with good color and remains strong and sound. This is stunning example of one of the most beautiful orders awarded by the Prussian Empire during the First World War and was considered to be the prerequisite for the Pour le Merite. Simply gorgeous condition.
