A Cloth Kriegsmarine Deutsches Kreuz in Gold by C. A. Westmann of Dresden. The cross is made out of a multi-piece construction, which consists of; a navy blue felt and glued on black paper backing, that is behind a white silk over cotton roundel and black cotton stitching over a cardboard cutout swastika which is all behind hand embroidered flatwire and multicolored cotton threads. The roundel is surrounded by a Juncker style, die struck, tombak based, gold gilded wreath. The obverse features a large centrally placed black mobile swastika, on a white round base, which is then surrounded by a laurel leaf and ribbon wreath that is marked “1941” to the bottom. The wreath is outlined with a thin twisted red thread to either side and is surrounded by a thin twisted flatwire line border. This is all on a dark grey eight point sunburst pattern that is outlined in flatwire and also lies on a navy blue felt base. The reverse shows 75% of the black paper backing that is tightly secured. It also featured its glued on stamp like manufacturers tag that reads: “C. A. Westmann Dresden”. It measures 2 7/8 inches tall and wide. Beautiful cloth, condition and golden wreath! One you won't want to let go!
