Here we have a bronze Cross of Honour of the German Mother with its packet! These crosses were introduced by decree in Berlin on 16 December 1938 by Chancellor of Germany (Reichskanzler) Adolf Hitler. These were awarded to mothers for exceptional merit to the German nation, who conceived and raised four to five children and exhibited probity, exemplary motherhood. This two piece award is constructed out of a die struck bronze base that 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 black static swastika above a white base, that is surrounded by “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” along with two styles of Hitler’s facsimile signature. The enamel work is 100% intact. If you turn the cross in the light you can see different shades of blue and the bronze wash is just beautiful! The cross measures approximately 1 13/16 inches tall by 1 7/16 inches wide. It also comes with approximately 26 inches of blue and white rayon ribbon. Nice!
