Here we have a Prussian Fireman’s 25 Year Long Service Award, on a parade/court mount! This was donated on July 16, 1922 by the Landesfeuerwehrverband and was awarded until 1934. It is constructed out of a die struck tombak based construction that has been silver washed, contains black enamel and has a final protectant lacquer coating. 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 the script: “Für 25 Jährige Dienstzeit” (For 25 Years of Service), in gilt, and is all surrounded by an oak leaf and acorn wreath, that is tied together at the bottom. The pebbled textured 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. To the top is a soldered on loop and ring which attaches the award to a tombak plate 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. The award measures approximately 1 ¼ inches wide by 1 3/8 inches tall. A bright a gorgeous piece!
