This is a most interesting presentation gift which came from Kronprinz Rupprecht of Bavaria. The gift was given to officers for an occasion that I have been unable to identify. Besides being a member of the Bavarian Royal Family and the heir to the throne after his father King Ludwig III, Rupprecht was a most able military commander and Generalfeldmarschall. He achieved the rank of generalfeldmarschall based on his ability, not just his royal birth. This gift consists of a custom-designed presentation case that also acted as a display case. This was done by lifting a section of the interior and converting it to an easel. It locks into a 45-degree position for easy viewing. The case measures 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4.” The easel holds an oval-shaped medallion of Prinz Rupprecht, which measures 1 3/4″ x 2.” The outer lid of the case is quite decorative and bears the Bavarian checkerboard design. The obverse of the medallion has a high-relief profile of the Prinz. The reverse of the medallion bears the hallmark of the jeweler who produced it, and the silver content (.900). To have received an item like this was a real honor. It would have been a prized possession of the original owner.
