Enamel Cross of Honor of the German Mother NEcklace
This Vintage Guilloche Cobalt enamel Cross is dated and signed ( I can't make out the signature) and I think it is on its original chain. The crosses were awarded annually on the second Sunday in May (Mothering Sunday or Mother's Day), so despite its institution in 1938, the first awards were rendered in May 1939. The last awards were presented in 1944. This one would have been one of the first. It measures 1 3/4" tall and has some enamel loss. The chain is 22" long.
