Saxony, Kingdom. An Albrecht Order, Commander’s Cross with Swords, c.1915

(Albrecht-Orden, Komturkreuz mit Schwertern). Instituted 1850 by King Friedrich August II of Saxony. (1914-1918 Issue). An extremely well-preserved example of a Commander’s Cross of the Albrecht Order, constructed of silver gilt with multi-coloured enamels, consisting of a white enameled Christ Cross with gilded borders joined through the arms by a green and red enamel laurel wreath, the obverse presenting with a central medallion composed of a gilt relief of Duke Albrecht III of Saxony inside a blue enameled ring bearing the Order’s Motto of “ALBERTUS ANIMOSUS” (“ALBERT THE MERCIFUL”), the reverse presenting with a central medallion composed of a crowned royal coat of arms in silver gilt and enamels, surrounded by a blue enameled ring bearing the Order’s institution date of “1850”, on loop for suspension from its period original ribbon, unmarked, measuring 53.57 mm (w) x 87.63 mm (h) (inclusive of crown suspension), weighing 55.8 grams (inclusive of ribbon), minor flecking of enamels and tarnishing of silver gilt features evident, but the Cross is in an otherwise near extremely fine condition.
