GERMANY – MEDAL BAR -TWO-PLACE – GEBRÜDER GODET WORKSHOPS – BERLIN
This a lovely two-place medal bar. It was produced In the 1930’s from the workshops of Gebrüder Godet (previously Godet und Söhne), which had been one of Kaiser Wilhelm II’s principal House Jewelers. They had produced some of the Imperial German Period’s finest orders and decorations, including Prussia’s Orden Pour le Mérite, the Order of the Black Eagle, the Red Eagle Order, Hohenzollern House Orders, Iron Crosses, as well as many top level orders and decorations from Germany’s other royal houses.
The two-place medal bar displays the medals listed below from left to right.
- 1914 Iron Cross 2nd Class.
- Hindenburg Cross with Swords for Combatants.
Both the decorations are in MINT condition. Its reverse features a sturdy, wide pin for mounting it on a tunic or other garment. It has a gray felt backing, and a black label on which is beautifully stitched: Gebr. Godet & Co. [The Godet is much larger than anything else on the label].
