WWI Silver Honor Goblet for Air Victories

In solid silver, 19.5 cm high, marked on motto "800" along with Imperial German hallmarks; bottom of the goblet marked "Chef des Feldflugwesens", slightly polished, minor contact marks, in extremely fine condition. Established in 1915 as exclusively an aviation award, the Ehrenbecher fr den Sieger im Luftkampfe, or Honor Goblet for the Victor in Air Combat was generally given upon one's first victory in aerial combat (though the actual award bestowal might come some time after the victory). As the War progressed, the requirement for aerial victories may have increased later in the war, since air combat became more common. Also, only early winners received goblets in silver; several months after the institution of the award, these goblets, of same design, were produced in silver plated steel, and at the end of the War only award documets were given out, but not a goblet.
