Meissen was one of the premier makers of tableware and porcelain items in Imperial Germany. The firm is hundreds of years old, and has survived to this day. Today we are offering a large-format table medal that salutes the Graf Zeppelin’s (LZ-127) “Around the World Tour.” The tour began in Friedrichshafen, Germany, where the Graf Zeppelin was built, and continued on to Tokyo, Los Angeles, and Lakehurst, NJ (where her sister ship, the Hindenburg, exploded in May 1937) before returning to Germany.
It measures 2″ in diameter and is chocolate brown. It shows a hallmark for Meissen on both sides. This is something different for you zeppelin collectors.
