    Default Teutonic Order/Marian Cross - 1871-1918

    Hi Chaps, here's a recent addition. It's a Teutonic Order/Marian Cross (knight) (Marianer-Kreuz des Deutschen Ritterordens, Ritter) issued from 1871 to 1918. This order had its origins in the time of the Crusades during the siege of Acre in 1190 with the establishment of a hospital for German soldiers. The order was revived in 1871 by Archduke Wilhelm and then Archduke Eugen as High Grand Masters to encourage and support voluntary hospitals and medical care. This example is maker marked on the ring 'VM' for V. Mayer’s Söhne of Vienna & silver marked 'A',

    Cheers,

    Richard.

    Hi Ade, yeah, it's a very classy award with all the qualities you'd expect from a court jeweller. I particularly like the raised black enamels, Cheers, Richard.
