Netherlands, Kingdom. An Order of Orange-Nassau, I Class Grand Cross Star, by J.M.J van Wielik, c.1920

(Orde van Oranje-Nassau). Instituted on 4 April 1892 by Queen-Regent Emma. Civil Division. A multiple ray eight-point silver star, centre obverse presents a Gold rampant lion on a dark blue enamelled medallion with small Gold rectangles in the background, surrounded by a white enamel surround with the inscription JE MAINTENDRAI (I Will Maintain), centre reverse presents a vertical pin assembly, makers marked with cartouche of J.M.J van Wielik, well hallmarked on pin and catch with a dutch sword denoting silver fineness of .833 between 1906-1953, unidentified “HB 1” mark on pin, measures 89mm (w) x 89mm (h), enamels fully intact, toning on silver rays, extremely fine condition.

Footnote: The Order of Orange-Nassau was established by Queen Emma in the name of her daughter, Queen Wilhelmina, in 1892. It was considered necessary to establish another order following the discontinuation of the Order of the Oak Crown and the Order of the Golden Lion of Nassau in the Netherlands. It is currently the most widely conferred order in the Netherlands. The reigning Dutch monarch is the Grand Master of the Order. The Order is conferred upon Dutch citizens and foreigners in recognition of meritorious service to Dutch society. During the Second World War, it was conferred upon Dutch and Allied military personnel for participation in the liberation of the Netherlands and Dutch colonies. J.M.J van Wielik was established in 1841 and manufactured all of the Dutch and Luxembourg orders.
