WÜRTTEMBERG – MEDAL BAR – FOUR PLACESKU: 02-317
This is a four-place medal bar. From left to right are the
*1914 Iron Cross 2nd Class.
*Friedrich Order Knight’s Cross 1st Class with Swords – Württemberg. It is a fine example, with only a little scuffing on its enamel arms. This is a very high level award and is more frequently seen in the 2nd Class than the 1st Class. I actually thought this was a 2nd Class until corrected by a sharp eyed reader.
*Hindenburg Cross for Combatants with Swords.
*Landwehr Reserve Long Service Award – Württemberg.
This is a fetching medal bar. Both the decorations and the ribbons are in fine condition.
WÜRTTEMBERG – MEDAL BAR – TWO PLACESKU: 02-455

WÜRTTEMBERG – MÜTZE – ENLISTED MAN – ARTELLERIE – PRIVATE PURCHASESKU: 33-394 XFQ
This is a particularly interesting example as it was privately purchased as opposed to being issued from the army depot. This resulted in a mütze that was made from better materials and was not issued and reissued to multiple men. It would also have been better cared for as this man paid for it with his own funds….
WÜRTTEMBERG – PAPERWEIGHT WITH MINIATURE INFANTERIE-REGIMENT Nr 126 OFFICER’S DRESS SHOULDER BOARD –SKU: 15-74
Desk pieces of all kinds were very popular in Imperial Germany. This was especially true for officers who might have miniature swords as decorations or as letter openers, for example. In this case an officer from 8. Württemberg Infanterie-Regiment Nr 126 Große Herzog Friedrich von Baden had a paperweight made with a miniature of a dress (banjo style) shoulder board imbedded in glass. The result is a very striking desk piece that is a real attention-getter. Imagine how handsome this would look on your desk (as it will on mine until you buy it)!
