AVIATOR’S THREE-PLACE TIE BAR/LAPEL DECORATION

SKU: 14-435

$750.00

This is an amazing horizontal display that shows some of an Imperial German Air Service aviator’s awards. In addition to its excellent quality, a most interesting aspect is the wonderful story it tells us about his service. Both during and after WW I, it was quite common for military officers to have tie bars or boutonnieres prepared to exhibit their medals and decorations. Our chap here did the same thing, attaching it by a safety pin on the middle device. What is even MORE extraordinary, the Propeller Device and Gallipoli Star are both made of .925 silver, while the Observer Badge is .800! That is an EXTREMELY high silver content. The display’s overall measurement is 1 ¼” x 1 ¼.” From left to right, the medals are listed below.
1). Prussian Army Observer Badge Miniature. This is a lovely piece that measures ” x ½.” It is highly detailed on the obverse. The red and white observer’s device is made of enamel. The badge is hallmarked for .800 silver on the reverse, as well as a small rivet in the center by which the observer’s device is affixed.

2). Fliegertruppen’s Winged Propeller Device. It measures 1 ¼” x 1 .” It is also hallmarked for .925 silver in the propeller’s center on its reverse. A large, sturdy safety pin soldered to the hollowed-out propeller’s back allowed the presentation’s attachment to a garment.

3). The Turkish Gallipoli Star Miniature. It was awarded to German allies for their service with the Turks. The miniature measures ½” x ½.” Much of its obverse is covered with red enamel, which makes it an extremely handsome decoration. The miniature’s reverse center is hallmarked for .925 silver.

The Prussian Army Observer Badge and Gallipoli Star miniatures hang down from small jump rings on the Fliegertruppen Device’s left and right wingtips. It is a very handsome presentation. This extremely high-quality, HIGH silver content arrangement was assembled by a knowledgeable jeweler who did topnotch work.
