The Order of the Red Eagle was an Imperial German award given to both military personnel and civilians, to recognise valour in combat, excellence in military leadership, long and faithful service to the kingdom, or other achievements. As with most German orders, the Order of the Red Eagle could only be awarded to commissioned officers or civilians of approximately equivalent status.

By the time of WW1, the award had evolved into six classes. This is the Grand Cross version - the highest class. Typically awarded only to male members of the royal family, to members of the Order of the Black Eagle, to noblemen, and to foreign royalty, this award was one of the highest honours of Imperial Germany.

This impressive enameled breast star breast star measures approximately 8.8 cm point to point and fastens on the back with a pin. A lovely quality replica of this quite beautiful award.

The Imperial German WW1 gallantry decorations and military campaign medals offered by The Regalia Specialist are full size awards being die struck and carefully finished as closely as possible to original specifications.
