Here's an excellent example of a bronze mothers cross that was given to eligible mothers with four to five children. These crosses were introduced by decree in Berlin on 16 December 1938 by Chancellor of Germany (Reichskanzler) Adolf Hitler. This two piece award is made of stamped tombak, has been bronze washed and includes blue, black and white enamel work. The obverse is in the form of a Christian cross and shows; a centrally place swastika, that is surrounded by a bannered “Der Deutschen Mutter” (The German Mother) and is in front of a sunburst pattern. The reverse shows a flat back with a recessed: "16. December 1938". The enamel work is in beautiful shape, being 100% intact. If you turn the cross in the light you can see different shades of blue! The award retains a nice matte bronze wash. The cross measures 5cm by 3.5cm. A beauty example purchased from Vet’s family.
