Greece, Kingdom. An Order of the Phoenix, Military Division, Commander, c.1945

(Τάγμα του Φοίνικος). Type II (1935-1973) with Crown and Without Letters ""E-T-T-A"". Silver gilt phoenix insignia, mounted to a silver gilt and white enamelled cross base, unmarked, measuring 56.2 mm (w) x 79.2 mm (h) inclusive of its crown suspension, on its original full-length neck ribbon with hook and eye, intact enamels, extremely fine.

Footnote: The Order of the Phoenix is an order of Greece, established on May 13, 1926, by the republican government of the Second Hellenic Republic, to replace the defunct Royal Order of George I. The Order was retained by the revived Monarchy after 1935, and continues to be awarded by the current Third Republic. The Order is bestowed by the Greek government to Greek citizens who have excelled in the arts and literature, science, public administration, shipping, commerce, and industry. It is also awarded to foreigners who have helped raise Greece's international prestige.
