Rare Mutterkreuz clasp in bronze.

Article about: The mother's cross must be one of the most most beautiful awards ever made. I am constantly amazed when looking at them under a loupe. And this piece just illustrates it again! 'Sad' to say

    The mother's cross must be one of the most most beautiful awards ever made. I am constantly amazed when looking at them under a loupe. And this piece just illustrates it again!

    'Sad' to say that I have seen a number of other variations. So your work is not yet done And then there is still the 1st pattern...

    Nice to see one of the 'half sizes' in the collection as well! That group photo is really stunning!

    Jody's answer is: "The cross is a rare customised piece in gold. I got this off of a veteran a few years back."

    Thanks for your comments János, these are really beautiful and under-rated awards, over looked by many collectors I believe in favour of combat decorations.
    The variations are out there but a first pattern is sadly well beyond my current collecting budget.
    Jody's cross is a nice example, never seen this before but believeable in terms of the apparent modification by the wearer. Not sure if this would've been approved by the powers that be though!

    However, apparently not under-rated at the time:

    'Amongst our decorations there are three that really have value: the Mutterkreuz (Mother's Gross), the Dienstauszeichnung (Service Decoration) and the Verwundetenabzeichen (Wounds Badge). At the top of them, the Mutterkreuz in gold; it's the finest of the lot. It's given without regard for social position, to peasant's wife or Minister's wife.'

    Hi Guys,
    My cross was obtained from a 3rd Infantry Division veteran in August of 2014 (BTW, it is in gold). It is very unique and the beading matches the enamel and there is even a decorative edge to the beading.

    Here it is and how I now have it displayed. BTW, Adrian I love your bronze clasp.

    Regards,
    Jody
