WWI CROIX DE GUERRE

45.00

The Croix de Guerre was a military decoration that recognized acts of bravery performed by French soldiers during WWI.

The meda was designed by French sculptor Paul-Albert Bartholomé  and features two crossed swords between the arms of the cross as well as a woman in a liberty cap, signifying the French Republic. The reverse center bears the years in which the medal was bestowed; this particular example is marked “1916-1917.”

The cross is suspended by a ring through a suspension loop cast atop the upper cross arm, where it hangs from a 37mm wide green-and-red-striped silk moiré ribbon.

A brass or silver star or palm pin designated the rank and military branch of the officer. This medal is missing its pin, but it is still in good vintage condition. A fabulous piece of military history.
