Vintage & Rare Finland Order Of The Lion Medal Officer Grade Post Ww2
Offered is an original Order of the Lion from Finland - Officer Grade. Features a Silver cross pattée, the arms frosted, with eyelet with silver hallmarks and silver and red enamel suspension ring; the face with a circular central red enamel medallion bearing a silver lion of Finland within a ridged ring with red enamel ties; the reverse plain white enamel; on original ribbon with rosette. The Order was established on 11 September 1942 and may be awarded for both military and civilian merit to Finns and to foreigners. It was designed by Oskar Pihl, son of Fabergés Moscow master, who was the influential head designer of the Finnish jeweller and silversmith Tillander from 1923 to 1957. The aim of the creation of the Order was to prevent dilution of the Order of the Cross of Liberty and the Order of the White Rose of Finland at a time when Finlands heroic struggle against Soviet forces was daily littered with acts of heroism and merit that deserved recognition.
