Portugal ORDEN ST. JAKOBS VOM SCHWERT

Ordenskleinod vom Ende des 18. Jahrhunderts. Silber und vollständig mit geschliffenen Kristallsteinen besetzt.
Das mit roten Steinen geschmückte Kreuz des San Yago Ordens separat eingesetzt und rückseitig verstiftet.
Auf der Rückseite Bügelöse für das Ordensband sowie Tragenadel.

Prächtige Ordensdekoration in feinster portugiesischer Goldschmiedearbeit aus dem späten 18. Jahrhundert.

Das Tragen juwelenbesetzter Ordensinsignien war im gesamten 18. Jahrhundert gebräuchlich und ist auf zahlreichen zeitgenössischen Porträts von Rittern vieler unterschiedlicher europäischer Orden dokumentiert.


Besonders auf der Iberischen Halbinsel in Spanien und Portugal wurden die Kleinodien der traditionsreichen mittelalterlichen Ritterorden in prächtiger Ausführung getragen.
Dabei war die Kostbarkeit der Ausgestaltung dem Geschmack und den Möglichkeiten der jeweiligen Ordensritter überlassen.

Besonders Insignienn des portugiesischen Christus Ordens haben sich in unterschiedlichsten Ausführungen bis heute erhalten, wohingegen Dekorationen des Aviz - Ordens und des Ordens St. Jacobs vom Schwert nur in verhältnismäßig geringer Anzahl die Zeiten überdauert haben.

Prachtvolle, wunderschöne Ordensdekoration von großer Seltenheit.
