Product Information

Imperial Germany- Saxe Weimar Eisenach: WW1 Decoration of Merit 
for Women in Wartime. Oval shaped medal in zinc (war time metal) with 
the heads of Grand Duchesses Feodora and Maria Paulovna.
On the obverse: Circumscribed Feodora 1915 – Maria Paulovna 1815 
Grand Duchesses of Saxony.
The medal was instituted in 1915 by Grand Duke Wilhelm Ernst to be 
awarded to female recipients for meritorious humanitarian services 
during wartime. 
Grand Duchess Feodora was patron of the Ladies Union of the Grand 
Duchy of Saxony. The Union had been founded in 1815 by Grand 
Duchess Maria Paulovna to provide aid and relief to the wounded 
veterans of the Napoleonic Wars. 
The medal was designed by Professor Roemer, in Munich and was 
originally intended to be produced in silver but war related shortages 
led to the medal being produced in silvered zinc alloy.
A very rare medal.
