    Description

    Ducal Saxe-Ernestine House Order. 38mm x 47mm, exclusive of ribbon, no hallmarks. The Ducal Saxe-Ernestine House Order, was instituted in five classes jointly on December 25, 1833 by Duke Friedrich of Saxe-Altenburg, Duke Ernst I of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha and Duke Bernhard Erich Freund of Saxe-Meiningen. A number of changes were made to the Order in 1864, including the addition of a "golden" (silver-gilt) medal and in 1890 a Knight II class was added. The Order was suppressed as a state award at the end of World War I but continued to be awarded sparingly as a dynastic house decoration until banned by the National Socialist regime in 1936. Excellent condition.
