Bavarian Maximilian Order - 1980

Recommended Posts

For general Information.

A colleague reminded me that the State of Bavaria renewed the Maximilian Order years ago and provided the following information.  Insignia supposedly made by Hemmerle, Munich largely duplicates that of the 1853 Order save for the suspension. 


Bavarian Maximilian Order

The Bavarian Maximilian Order for Science and the Arts is awarded in recognition of outstanding achievements in the fields of science and art and represents a particularly high state honor. The number of order holders should not exceed one hundred.

The award goes to German scientists and artists. The Order is awarded in a class to men and women. The ceremony takes place every two years. The Order is awarded by the Prime Minister. The Prime Minister is entitled to submit proposals, while the Ministers of State and the two departments of the Order are responsible for their areas of business.

The Bavarian Maximilian Order for Science and Art was created in 1980, following on from the original donated by King Maximilian II in 1853.

Hello Nick and thank you for this information, images and, most of all, for your good wishes!  These images reveal high manufacture quality of a very rare 'modern' award.  The document [to Martha Mödl the opera singer?] indicates the quality of persons honored with this decoration.  All best regards,  EJ
