LIPPE-DETMOLD CROSS – TRUE SERVICE 2nd CLASS – AWARDED – ARCHDUKE EUGEN – AUSTRIA

SKU: 08-441

$1,350.00

This is the Principality of Lippe-Detmold’s Cross for True Service 2nd Class in the original presentation case. It was Archduke Eugen (1863-1954) of Austria’s personal property. The presentation case measures 5 1/4″ x 2 1/2″ x 3/4.” Embossed in gold on the outer lid is “Fürstl. Schaumburg-Lippe’sches Kreuz für Treue Dienste 1914.” (My research does not show when this decoration was awarded). Upon opening the case, the cross is revealed. It is NOT mounted on its white and blue trifold ribbon. A stretched piece of the correct blue and white ribbon appears on the case’s inner lid. The name of Rothe & Neffe, the Austrian Kaiser’s official court jeweler, appears on the upper lid. It is a very fine decoration, in excellent condition.
