GERMANY – COMMEMORATION – FRAMED – GERMAN SOLDIER’S WW I SERVICESKU: 12-782
$295.00This is a marvelous framed commemoration of his service during WW I for a German soldier. The period frame is black with gold interior highlights, sports a glass front cover, and measures 19 ½” x 23 ½.” Kaiser Wilhelm II’s portrait appears at the extremely colorful print’s top. Flanking him are the Kings of Saxony and Bavaria, as well as the Grand Dukes of Baden and Hesse-Darmstadt. Decorative motifs that are both military and patriotic in nature cover the print. A careful examination reveals the figures of three soldiers whose heads have been replaced by pasted-in black and white photos of the same soldier. One pose reveals his shoulder straps, which are for Infanterie-Regiment Nr 66. An actual 1914 Iron Cross 2nd Class has been pasted to the print’s bottom center. Clearly the featured soldier won it during WW I. The presentation’s overall condition is very fine. [Due to the size and nature of this item, additional shipping and handling will be required.
