History


The Order was established by Prince Georg of Schaumburg-Lippe and was conferred in recognition of outstanding achievements in the areas of art and science.

The Award was seldom awarded and the majority of recipients were awarded for achievements in the arts.

The crosses were originally produced by Carl Büsch, but as of 1914, C.F. Zimmermann became the primarily producer.
