1897 Chromolithograph of 33 German State Orders

Recommended Posts

I just picked up this very nice chromolithograph in excellent condition showing 33 beautiful pictures of the German State Orders. I'm not too familiar with German Imperial awards but this seems to be a very complete display of them. The Orders are extremely detailed with rich silver/gold/coloured paint. I will post a better picture once I have my camera.

It has 'Bibliographisches Institut in Leipzig' on the bottom centre of the paper with 'Meyers Konx-Lexikon, 5. Aufl' on the bottom left of the paper and 'Zum Artikel >> Orden <<' bottom right.

This once was part of an encyclopedia containing 3 of these plates:

Orden I = Orden der Deutschen Staaten

Orden II = Ausserdeutsche Staaten Europas

Orden III = Aussereuropäische Staaten

There are more of these coloured plates around, also from other encyclopedea.
