WÜRTTEMBERG – ACKNOWLEDGMENT MEDAL of the KING KARL ANNIVERSARY FOUNDATION -1893-1921 – ORIGINAL PRESENTATION CASE
This is an interesting jubilee decoration that commemorates both König Karl and König Wilhelm II of Württemberg. The decoration is silver. It measures 1″ in diameter. The obverse features a high-profile image of König Wilhelm II of Württemberg. The reverse displays “Koenig-Karl-Jubilaeums-Stiftung.” Within a wreath of leaves are the words “Für Langjährice Treue Dienste.” The decoration is attached to a red and black ribbon. A decorative clasp is attached to the ribbon with a crowned “W.” The decoration’s final touch is a pin on the reverse that allowed it to be attached to a garment.
The decoration is handsomely housed in a black leatherette presentation case. The presentation case is somewhat scuffed and measures 4″ x 2″ x 1/2.” Inside the case, the upper half is lined in red silk. The lower half is cut out to hold the decoration. The upper portion that holds the clasp spills over into a separate compartment. The decoration is in first-class condition, having been protected by the presentation case for all these years.
