Royal Order of the Sword (Kungliga Svärdsorden), Sword Cross, by C. F. Carlman, Stockholm
Silver Maltese cross decussate with ball-tipped finials and with silver Swedish crowns between the arms, with crossed swords above and on swivel crown suspension with maker's mark ‘CFC’ (C.F. Carlman, Swedish crown jewellers, Stockholm) and silver hallmarks to the reverse; the face with a circular central deep blue enamel medallion bearing in gilt an upright sword and the three crowns of Sweden; the reverse with a circular central medallion with horizontal hatching bearing an upright sword imposed on a laurel wreath, inscribed ‘PRO PATRIA’ (Latin = for Fatherland); on original ribbon mounted for wear. The Order of the Sword was instituted on 23 February 1748 by King Fredrik I, reinstating an Order dating from the 12th Century, to be awarded to officers for long and faithful service. On 26 June 1850, the Sword Cross was added for award to non-commissioned officers and the Sword Medal for other ranks, both for at least 16 years’ service. The order has not been presented since 1974. A very fine example of excellent quality.
