SKU: 05-1656

$175.00

This is the Honor Cross for Voluntary Welfare Service in War from Saxony. The decoration was similar to one given to Red Cross workers, but was for civilians aiding the war effort on a voluntary basis. It was awarded for service during the period from 1914 to 1916. It is a smaller decoration that measures 1” x 1 5/8” from the top where the jump ring is attached to the cross’s bottom. The obverse’s center features König Friedrich August III of Saxony’s royal cypher. The reverse features the dates “1914-1916.”
The decoration is housed in its original presentation case. It is white and measures 3/4” x 3” x 2.” A red cross’s outline appears on the outer lid. Much of the paint from the red cross has worn off. The reverse features one complete manufacturer’s paper stamp, and a partial paper stamp for another. Inside, the case’s upper section is lined in green velvet. The lower half has a fitted portion where the decoration is housed. It also has a small compartment where a small piece of the original ribbon is housed. It is an attractive,

seldom-seen decoration.
