More About this Item


Description: Hohl in Gold gefertigtes Halskreuz der Berliner Traditionsfirma Wagner (Ritzmarke "W") mit perfekt plan geschliffener Emaille in perfektem Erhaltungszustand am Trageband vernäht. Breite 52 mm. Diese für Carl Menshausen höchste preußische Auszeichnung wurde ihm auf "dem Hügel" wohl von Kaiser Wilhelm II. persönlich überreicht! Der am 26. August 1847 in Pleß in Oberschlesien geborene Carl Menshausen schloss 1863 das Gymnasium zu Stendal ab, betätigte sich als Kaufmann in Bremen und unter der Obhut eines Verwandten, des österreichischen Generalkonsuls Menshausen, in Alexandria in Ägypten. Dort war er bis in die zweite Hälfte der 70er Jahre als selbständiger Kaufmann tätig, unternahm viele Reisen (Abessinien 1868) und eignete sich umfassende Sprachkenntnisse an. In Kairo lernte er 1875 Friedrich Alfred Krupp kennen, der ihn zwei Jahre später in das Unternehmen holte. Nach sich entwickelnder Freundschaft zu F.A. Krupp, wird Menshausen 1879 der Vertreter der Firma in China, reist dann über Japan und die USA nach Europa zurück und widmet sich dem Kontakt zu fremden Regierungen und dem Verkauf von Kriegsmaterial für die Firma Krupp. In Spanien, Portugal und dem Balkan tätig, tritt er 1893 in das Direktorium von Krupp ein, wird 1905 in den Aufsichtsrat berufen. 1906 wird er zum Türkischen Generalkonsul ernannt und verstirbt nach kurzer Krankheit am 21. Juli 1909 in Düsseldorf. Sein angebotener Ordensnachlass ist ein beredtes und museales Zeugnis seiner Lebensstationen als führender Wirtschaftskapitän im Wilhelminischen Deutschland und eng mit der Firmengeschichte von Krupp verbunden.

Shipping: Hermann Historica is pleased to ship purchased lots on behalf of absentee bidders.

Importantly, absentee bidders should note that purchases made using our absentee bid form, by either telephone or in writing, that shipping instructions must be indicated by ticking the box on the bid form. In the absence of this instruction we will automatically assume that the buyer will require Hermann Historica to ship on his / her behalf. The standard shipping charge will cover the costs of packing and postage, together with insurance against loss or damage in transit only. These charges will be recorded on the buyer`s invoice (the insurance premium calculated at 1% of the aggregate purchase figure)

If shipping costs are not recorded on the buyer´s invoice it means either that the buyer intends to collect purchases in person or that standard shipping is not possible. In the latter case this may be for reasons of the abnormal size, weight or fragility of the purchased property, it may also result from the specific application of legal requirements.

In this instance we shall obtain a freight quotation on behalf of the buyer. Upon subsequent receipt of confirmed instructions Hermann Historica shall be pleased to proceed with shipping.



Important

Due to changed regulations it is unfortunately no longer possible to send any kind of firearms from Germany to foreign destinations by regular mail service. We will, if possible, organise international shipping through forwarding agents or specialised courier services, however, with the consequence of noticeably higher shipping costs.



Information importante pour les expéditions

En application de la nouvelle loi, nous sommes au regret de vous informer qu'il ne sera plus possible d'envoyer des armes à feu (incluyant les armes antiques) par la poste vers l'étranger. Toutefois, nous essayons d'organiser ces envois par entreprises de transport ou services courrier spécialisés, mais conséquemment les frais d'envoi seront sensiblement plus élevés.
