Alexander, the July Monarchy (Monarchie de Juillet) was the period from 1830 to 1848 when France was a constitutional monarchy.  Given the age, and the tendency of the enamel on this order to break easily, the example you show is in very good shape.

You can see some examples of different versions here: http://www.cndp.fr/crdp-reims/ressources/dossiers/legiondhonneur/panneau8ter/panneau8ter.htm

In the 19th century, due to frequent political changes, the centers were replaced according with the new statuts.

So one can find stars "1st Empire" with centers "Restauration" or "Monarchie de Juillet", stars "Restauration" with centers "Monarchie de Juillet" or "2d Empire", and so on... All combinations are possible.
