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

    Default Rare Mutterkreuz clasp in bronze.

    I finally managed to acquire a rare example of the Mutterkreuz clasp in bronze. I've been looking for one of these for years (seemingly) but at last I have one. A private purchase piece but unmarked it measures 21.88mm high and 55.20 long.
    I just need a silver and gold now......

    Very nice Adrian, when would this have been awarded/ worn?

    Thank you for your comments János, Nick.

    This would have been a privately purchased item from an LDO outlet/jeweller as only the full sized medals on the long ribbon are award pieces. Mothers who were entitled to wear a Mutterkreuz would buy these other variations of cross from their own pocket to wear on everyday occasions. On formal occasions the full sized award would be worn.

    Here's a group shot of the bronze variants I've collected so far.....

    The reason I ask is I have seen this brooch style and wondered if it was home made
