Here we have a Prussian Fireman’s 25 Year Long Service Award, on a parade mount! This was donated on July 16, 1922 by the Landesfeuerwehrverband and was awarded until 1934. It is made out of a multi piece die struck nickel-silver based construction that has been silver washed, contains black enamel and has been soldered together. The oval shaped obverse features a fireman’s helmet on top of two crossed axes, which lies on a black enamel based and is above: “Für 25 Jährige Dienstzeit” (For 25 Years of Service), in yellow, and is all surrounded by an oak leaf and acorn wreath, that is tied together at the bottom. The reverse reads: “Verliehen Vom Preussischen Landes-Feuerwehr Verband” (Awarded by the Prussian State Firefighter Association) and is all surrounded by that same oak leaf and acorn wreath, that is tied together at the bottom. The front and back have been soldered together. To the top is a soldered on loop and ring which is attached to a brass based parade mount that is covered in a black and white rayon ribbon to the obverse and a blue wool to the reverse. The reverse of the bar has a brass pin, hinge and catch assembly. Nice age toning and beautiful detail! The award measures approximately 1 ¼ inches wide by 1 3/8 inches tall. A nice piece available today for you!
