Rare Saxe Weimar, original Order of the White Falcon, Knights, 2nd Class with Swords, for military merit. Finely made of silver and enamels. Measures approximately 1 7/16 across at the widest. There is a penny in one scan to show scale. Weighs 19.9 grams on a jewelers scale. Reverse motto, Ascendimus Vigilando (Ascend by Vigilance). The green enamel is entirely intact on both sides. The white enamel on the falcon is intact except on the three spaces just near the body where it has hairlines and is mission a couple of tiny chips (visible under a jewelers loupe). The blue enamel on the reverse (with the motto) is missing chunk between the last two words (visible to the naked eye). Small piece of original ribbon. An attractive and rare piece and priced accordingly with the minor flaws in mind. Established on August 2, 1732 by Duke Ernest August of Saxony-Weimar ad renewed on October 18, 1815 by Grand Duke Charles August. This was primarily a house order but was also awarded to foreign heads of state and to Saxons for outstanding civil and military merit.
