    Order of St Vladimir, 4th class Breast Badge for 35 Years of Service, in gold, by Albert Keibel, 1894 - 1899.

    Order of St Vladimir, 4th class Breast Badge for 35 Years of Service, in gold, by Albert Keibel, 1894 - 1899.

    Gold, enamels; measures 34.9 mm in width, 38.8 mm in height incl. eyelet; weighs 6.3 grams not including the suspension ribbon and connecting loop.

    Maker marked "AK" under red enamel on the reverse lower arm and shows double-headed eagle warrant on the reverse upper arm. The eyelet has "56" gold hallmark with the St. Petersburg assay inspection emblem of crossed anchors and scepter. The latter narrows the period of manufacture to just five years, from 1894-1899: from the moment when Albert Keibel inherited the highly esteemed jewelry firm from his father Julius and the year when the assay marks changed to the more familiar "Kokoshniks".

    In very fine condition. The red enamel on the arms is very well preserved overall. It is completely free of the usual chips, flaking or significant scratches and shows only mild surface rubbing. There is a single tiny hairline to the reverse on the 9 O'clock arm (when viewed from the reverse), but it is barely noticeable to the unaided eye and doesn't appear to be affecting the integrity of enamel. The obverse of the center medallion is perfect, with beautifully preserved, bright cartouche. The black enamel on the reverse of the medallion has been partly replaced, but this is only noticeable at very close examination with a magnifying glass or under the "black light".

    The badge includes connecting loop in unmarked gold. The ribbon in silk moiré has a safety pin attachment in brass. Both the loop and suspension are of the period and in all likelihood, original to the order. The ribbon is pristine.

    Overall, this is a very attractive, relatively early example of the uncommon length of service issue of the Order of St. Vladimir.
