Spanish War Cross – Breast Star

A Type I - Spanish War Cross Breast Star. This was instituted on January 26, 1937, amended in 1942, and awarded for military bravery. It is a multi-piece construction made of burnished nickel-silver and gilded tombak with multi-colored enamel work. The obverse features a centrally placed gold rose (on a blue round backing) surrounded by two rampant lions (on white backings) and two castles (on red pebbled translucent backing), which is surrounded by, in gold: “Al Merito En Campana” (on a lined blue translucent backing), encircled by a laurel and red berry wreath that has four arrows coming out of it, which has two rampant lions (left and right), a castle (lower) and a crown and bar (top) on each arrow, with sword handles in between each arrow, that all lies on a pebbled eight pointed star. The full back reverse features mnultiple cut outs to the exterior, five tombak rivets, a soldered on tapered hinge, flat wire catch and sturdy flat wire pin. Beautiful enamel work and gold/silver contrast. It measures 2 3/8 inches wide and tall. A great piece missing from most collections!
