Item description:

See scan - perfect condition. Comes with original case. THIS IS UNIQUE and JUST A SINGLE PIECE KNOWN TO EXIST. This is a very special issue made in France by the French jewelry & crafts manufacturers Chobillon sometimes in 1901 or 1902. This is a Bulgarian Royal Bravery order cross 4th Class, BUT it is made in sterling silver and marked / hallmark at top of lily like leaf hook. This is an unique issue ordered and has a special enamel work with leafs like silver base, as well as the cross has a big and unusual never seen before lily leaf like top and ball hook. The arms of the cross are also a little bit smaller than other regular issues. This particular cross was ordered only in ONE piece for a very special occassion - the arrival of the Russian Emperor / King Alexander III and his staff for the Grand opening of the Commemorative monument in Bulgaria. the monument was built in admiration to the Russian people that freed Bulgaria from the Ottoman Turkish occupation in 1878. On a special ceremony only about 30 or so highest ranking Russian officers from the Emperor's staff received special Bravery orders from the Bulgarian King Ferdinand I. There was only 1 4th Class Bravery order awarded and it was presented to Capt. Abadjiev, who was Rittermeister of the Emperor's cavalry escort. He received this decoration for his courage during the Russia - Turkey war of 1877 - 1878. Scarce and UNIQUE piece - an exceptional collector piece.
