A rare "presentation" G.A.R. Star


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hello,

the star of the Grand Army of the Republic is quite well known in the collecting community.

What I consider an exception is the star I'm going to illustrate in this topic: it was made as a present to a veteran of the Civil War, in the first years of 20th Century, in an outstanding quality. Two-colour gold, enamels and brilliants.

This piece will be auctioned in Italy in the coming weekend.

Best wishes,

Elmar Lang

Actually is a piece of the finest manufacture. The piece is unmarked, nor signed by the jeweller who made it (but it should have been someone mastering his art). The case bears no marks either.
