PRUSSIA – KNIGHT’S CROSS WITH SWORDS OF THE HOHENZOLLERN HOUSE ORDER – MINIATURE.
This is a very fine example of a miniature Knight’s Cross with Swords of the Hohenzollern House Order, Prussia’s number two award for bravery. It was only bested by the Orden Pour le Mérite. The cross’s enamel arms are multicolored, as is its center. A pair of swords extends through that center. Just like the full-sized examples of this decoration, the miniature sports an articulated crown. A correct ribbon is attached.
