Bulgaria - Kingdom of: Order of Saint Alexander 5th Class, Knight, silver and enamels, on original trifold ribbon and housed in its original presentation case. Condition: Good Very Fine. The order was established with a decree on 25 December 1881 in honour of the patron saint of Alexander Batenberg. Initially it was planned to have five grades and a Necklace but subsequently four grades and Grand and Lesser Necklace were formed and in 1908 a Grand Cross was added. With time wartime grades with swords in the middle and above the cross were added. The order was awarded to Bulgarian and foreign citizens with the personal benevolence of the Bulgarian monarch, who was the Grand Master.
