About this itemSERBIA ORDER OF St. SAVA IV CLASS IN FITTED CASE BY HUGUENIN
One of the world's most beautiful Orders, the craftsmanship is very early made from solid fine silver and then richly gold plated, with exquisite extra fine detailed and stunning enamel work, and superb quality workmanship. It is just like looking at a classical piece of art work. This beautiful Order was established by King Milan I Obrenović on 23 January (4 February) 1883 and named for St. Sava (1175/6-1235/6). St Sava was the son of Stefan Nemanja, founder of the medieval Serb state, and was the first Serb archbishop (1219-1233), most important saint of the Serbian Orthodox Church and patron saint of Serbia.
Silver gilt white-enamelled, blue-rimmed, gilt-edged Maltese cross with ball-tipped finials, double-headed crowned Serbian eagles between the arms, the royal arms imposed on their breasts, on swivel crown suspension; the face with a central oval medallion bearing the multi-coloured enamel portrait of St. Sava, his right hand raised in blessing, a staff in his left hand, within a blue ring inscribed in gilt letters with the Old Church Slavonic inscription ‘One’s Own Work Achieves All’; the reverse with a white enamel central oval medallion bearing the date ‘1883’ in silver gilt letters, encircled by a blue enamel ring decorated with gilt laurel leaves; on trifold ribbon; in original fitted embossed case of issue by Huguenin Frères, Le Locle, Switzerland.
